Origami Stars

Sometimes, when I talk about one of my nieces or nephews, I may not be talking about relatives as such. I have two especially dear friends, and their children call me 'Aunty' - such an honour! I thought I had best explain that one when I say that my niece (one who is not my brothers child) asked if I could make origami stars, and gave me a link on how to fold paper into stars. When I say "asked" ... it was more of a bet! (Thank you Ms Charmaine! lol)
Well, ... Could I?
The thinner the paper, the easier it is...
 I made so many different sizes out of all sorts of scraps of paper :)
 And when I'd finished... I made some more. These are hung up out of the way above my desk...
 I decided to take the smaller stars and put two back-to-back. Not the best photograph I'm afraid, but my camera is out of batteries and I'm having to use my laptop camera :)
So much fun to make - even if it does make your hands ache :)

These stars are beautiful. And twice as nice when stuck back to back. Your paper wreathes are amazing too. You are a talented lady.
