Project

3-D Paper Star Decorations

Using our 3-D paper star template and red, white, and blue card stock, you can create three-dimensional, star-shaped cutouts. Festive and easy to make, they're ideal for decorating tables or invitations to a Fourth of July party.

Materials

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Print out the template, and cut out the star. Place the template on the white card stock, and trace as many as will fit onto the sheet. Place the red and blue cardstock behind the white, and staple the three sheets together in the empty spaces between the stars. With sharp scissors or a ruler and utility knife, cut out the star shapes.

  2. Step 2

    Use the ruler or bone folder to score down the centerline of each of two different-color stars, from the tip of one point straight down. Fold the stars in half along the scoring, and smooth it down with the bone folder. Sandwich the unscored star between the two scored stars, and staple along the fold lines.

    This a great decoration. I added a string in the middle of mine to hange from trees and the patioo. The ones I used for the table I used the glitter card stock to give it a little sparkle.
