Christmas Crafts - Paper Crafts - Finnish Paper Star
This is a traditional craft that has been around for decades. I have no idea of the original source. The star below measures from top to bottom about 25 cm or 10 inches and looks beautiful hanging in the window for the holidays.
This particular star is made with gold paper.
In the colors of red and white, the star has a traditional Scandinavian look to it.
I experimented with thinner strips of paper to make this white star. It has a more dainty look to it, almost like a snowflake.
For this project you will need:
- 12 strips of gold paper measuring 30 cm (12 inches) x 1.5 cm or (0.6 inches) - stick glue - scissors - paper clips (to hold pieces together while glue is drying)
