This 3-dimensional star decoration is made from two paper stars that are interlaced. These stars stand by themselves on a table, and make a great patriotic or Christmas decoration.
- Stiff paper (like card stock, oaktag, or thin cardboard) or styrofoam meat trays
- Optional – Printer
- Optional – Crayons or markers
Two paper stars are needed to make one 3-dimensional star. Either draw two identical stars on a piece of stiff paper or print out this star template.
Decorate the two stars (if you like) on both sides, then cut them out.
Make one slit in each star. On one star, the slit goes from an inner corner to the center point of the star; on the other star, the slit goes from an outer corner to the center point.
Slip the two stars together through the slits you just cut. For stability, you may have to tape the stars a bit where they meet at the slits.
You now have a great three-dimensional star decoration that stands by itself on a table.
