Big Star
Topic: Fantastic Folds

As I was sitting in a restaurant at Christmas I looked up and saw their huge 5-point 3-dimensional stars haning from the ceiling. While waiting for service I started trying to figure our how I could construct one using 5 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock.

I drew on my napkin.

When I tried to use those sketches, though, I wisely used paper instead of cardstock and scaled back to 6 x 6 sheets.

As it turns out, you cannot make a 5-point star from my design. You CAN, however, make a 7-point star!

I added gold Stickles along the creases and ridges of each spoke and placed a giant flower brad in the center. This is a two-sided star - the same on both sides - so it could be hung from the ceiling... maybe in a restaurant! LOL!
