Print the FREE Star Within A Star Ornament pattern.
Try this! Print the pattern on a specialty paper such as white linen or Japanese specialty paper with gold flecks.
By enlarging the pattern you'll make it easier for younger children to cut it
Using a small sharp pointed scissors, cut out the large square pattern.
With design facing up, fold the square pattern in half.
Now fold in quarters.
Cut along the gray lines, carefully cutting out the gray shaded areas.
Punch holes (except for the Star Within A Star pattern).
Unfold carefully. There will be an inner design and an outer design. With pattern lines facing away, push the inner design away from you and press the folds to conform. Now pull the outer design towards you and press the folds to conform. This will give your ornament it's three dimensional look!
Spray coat with a clear coat to make it more durable. You can also spray it with a white pearlescent spray or gold leaf it for a unique effect!
