MA­TE­RI­ALS Q Cut­ting mat Q Em­boss­ing tool Q Tacky glue Q Ta­pes­try nee­dle

Place the pa­per face down with the tem­plate on top. Draw around the tem­plate, as well as mark­ing the holes.

Us­ing scis­sors, cut along the out­line drawn in Step 1, ig­nor­ing the hole marks for now.

Place face down onto a cut­ting mat. Use an em­boss­ing tool and ruler to score along each of the fold lines, which are marked on the tem­plate with dashed and solid lines. To po­si­tion th­ese score lines, use the hole marks drawn in Step 1, as well as the points of the outer edge, as a guide.

On the tem­plate, which shows the back of the piece, dashed lines are val­ley folds and solid lines are moun­tain folds. Still work­ing on the back of the pa­per, fold each scored line to cor­re­spond with the tem­plate.

Flat­ten the three in­di­cated tabs back, as shown.

Ap­ply glue to the three tabs, then fold the other half of the piece over onto the tabs as shown. Align the edges, then ap­ply pres­sure onto the glued ar­eas. Al­low to dry.

Pop out into the 3D star shape by push­ing from the in­side, through the open­ing, while also push­ing from the out­side with the other hand.

If you’re mak­ing hang­ing dec­o­ra­tions, cut a short length of baker’s twine, make a loop and tie a knot with the loose ends. Thread the loop onto a ta­pes­try nee­dle then, from in­side the star, pierce through the tip of one of the points, as shown (not the one op­po­site the open­ing). Pull the nee­dle and loop un­til stopped by the knot, then slide the nee­dle off the end. If de­sired, add a dot of glue to the knot for added se­cu­rity.
