Make a whole bunch of kirigami stars and string them up in a garland. The paper/card I used is thick, metallic card. If you make one of these stars (or any other one of my tutorials) please tag me (@paperkawaii) on instagram if you post a photo.
These stars are pentagram shaped stars , just like the ones you draw over and over again, oh that might just be me! All the Wiccans out there might appreciate these witchy pentacle stars to use for their altars and spells 🙂 I have quite an epic collection of star origami, you can view the origami star category here.
