Little teeny weeny origami stars that are very cute!
I made a jar of them for my fiance before he came back from sea last time. I put them in the box of things I made and gathered together for him.

I put a little label quote on the jar. In case it's not too clear the quote says; "If I could reach up and grab a star for everytime you make me smile, I'd be holding the entire night sky in the palm of my hand".

I was going to put love quotes in all of the stars, but I was lazy, so didn't :P.

    Step 1

    To make a star you start with a long thin strip of paper.

    You are to make an almost ribbon shape, with one side incredably long and the other very short.

    Step 2

    Pull the long end of the ribbon through the loop to make a knot. Don't pull it so tight that the paper scrunches or rips. You should end up with a little pentagon with a short and long bit sticking out.

    Keep folding, until you have a little pentagon with a small flappy bit. Tuck the flappy bit inside the pentagon, you may have to cut a little off if it's too long.

    Take the pentagon between your fingers and push so there is a little dent in each side. This will form the points of the star.

I just used plain A4 coloured paper, nothing special. Not sure what thickness standard A4 is, or whether it's the same everywhere. I have used other types of paper, and it's worked out fine. You should be ok with whatever paper you have to hand.

Apparently though standard A4 is 0.0001m =S, though I'm not sure that's overly helpful.

Just cut strips of paper and have a go, good luck!

How thick does the paper need to be? Can I cut strips of paper to practice or is there paper I need to buy?

They are cute and I plan on trying this out. I have always wanted to make these.
