Travel Origami
We all find ourselves buying more postcards than we can send, and why not? They’re great little souvenirs for keeping as well as for sending. This star is a great way to enjoy lots of memories in one place. Base it on a lot of trips, a single strip, a stop along the way, or even a theme. It only takes eight!!

Create your own starry starry sky.

Hint: you can do this with museum post cards for a work of art that features...art. Or, you can buy books of themed postcards that feature some of your favorite things: gardens, astronomy, animals—there’s almost no end to what’s available. The only requirement is eight sheets of postcard-shaped paper. The rest is up to you.
