Hey everyone!! Yatie here, back with another altered project. This week I have a tutorial on how to make puffed up paper stars which you could use as embellishment for you scrapbooking layouts or other paper projects.
Ok, first off these are the things that you will need:
|1. Paper strips, patterned or otherwise (9" x 3/8")|
2. Glue tape
|Take one strip and tie it into a knot at one end.|
|Try to pull it slowly and carefully to make the knot flat.|
|Cut off the short end|
|Take the longer end and fold it over the flattened knot, following the fold of the knot|
and aligning the edges.
|Keep folding it over and over until you come to the end of the strip.|
|Snip off any excess.|
|You can tuck the end into one of the folds but I choose to apply glue tape and adhere.|
Easier and faster.
|Now you'll have a flat folded star with 5 sides.|
|This is the difficult part to explain but I'll try my best. Using your fingernails, push in the|
sides of the star, midway between one corner to another.
|Go around the sides and push them all towards the middle with your nails. The star|
will automatically start to puff up.
|You'll get a cute little star like this.|
|Here's a bunch of them. Cute no?|
Here's a layout I did using those cute little puffed up stars.
