Origami stars are one of the easiest and most fun crafts to make. Plus they are SUPER KAWAII! You can buy paper made specifically for this purpose in Japanese stores, but it’s just as easy to make your own (and then you have a bazillion more options for patterns and colors!)
Cut the paper of your choice into strips. I take 12×12 scrapbook paper and cut it into 1/2 x 11 inch strips using a rotary cutter. Any paper will work, just as long as it isn’t too thick like cardstock. Also, you can cut thicker or thinner strips for different sized stars.
And that’s it! Use these cute little stars for whatever you want. You can write little wishes/compliments on the inside and fill a jar with them as a gift. I have two long strands of them in my craftroom that are bright and cheery.
Like anything I make, my cat thinks the stars are a toy for her. Here is a video of her attacking the stars, which no matter how often I clean up, I seem to find in every room of my house.
