DIY: origami lucky stars

 So I went with my dad to a home depot store the other day
to get some paint, because dad wanted to repaint the fridge (it turned
yellow-ish). I like to go to these kind of construction store.
Especially the paint/wallpaper section where I love to snatch some
wallpaper samples (don't worry I don't do that all the time) for
DIY purpose. An origami project to be exact! 

Now, I really envy those people who can do awesome origami
crafts while I can only fold cranebirds & stars, which I'll be
showing you in today's DIY post. And its a little bit different
because I'm using wallpaper with texture. 

Maybe a tip for birthdays, baby showers, wedding gifts? c:

    I really like these paper stars! They're so sweet and cute - I'll have to try making them sometime, though I'm quite clumsy at stuff like this!

  16. i used to love doing stars like this and i remember buying colorful papers that are already (specially) cut out in long,thin strips for the star folding purpose. and then i lost my patience because my stars are either ugly or just flat...ugly :P i envy people who can do neat and awesome handy-crafts *o* like..where do you guys get all the patience ack -.- the same goes for origami; the easiest for me is making trash box lol i can't even make cranes! i'm always lame when it comes to using hands to do stuff like this :P too impatient to do them.
    but i still want to keep a jar filled with paper stars like this though *o* it makes an adorable collection~

  17. Aww these are so cute, will definitely have to give them a try. Think they would look great as table decorations, scattered around the table, especially at Christmas time :) x
