You will need:
- Template – download and print here
- Coloured card
- Star punch
- Sticky tape
Print out the template (above) onto card and cut it out. Trace the template on to five sheets of coloured card and cut them out.
Score and fold along the dotted lines and then assemble each point of the star, applying glue to the tabs and sticking them in place.
When dry, flatten each point and use the star punch to cut out shapes along two sides.
Turn the points back into 3D shapes again. Take one point and make a small cut at the pointy end. Cut a length of string and thread it through the hole. Add a little tape to hold it securely inside the point.
Next, fold the end tabs on each point inwards. Start sticking the points together until a star shape is created – this can be quite fiddly so it’s best to let each section dry before adding the next point.
