Learn how to make a kirigami star made out of a strip of paper or card. Download the free printable template! These three-dimensional paper stars make great hanging decorations at Christmas or all year round!
I was unsure if I was happy with this tutorial, at least for people who do not print out the template. But, after seeing several successful kirigami stars posted on instagram using the tutorial, the tutorial worked for them so, it must be ok.
The template can be printed onto any type of paper, thick paper or card works well, even stiff card. I feel like it would be a fun activity to cut them out with friends and family.
Make a whole bunch and string them up in a garland! The paper/card I used is pretty 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! 😀
