5 Star Ornament Tutorial




Good Morning Paper Crafters.  I have had so much fun creating projects with the Layers of Colors upcoming Christmas new release sets.  I ended up making several ornaments.  The first one is a 3-D 5 star ornament.  You make four folds and one cut.  I have included a photo tutorial that I hope will make it easy for you to create these as well.  If you do decide to create one, I'd love to see yours  ... just leave me a comment with a link.  I'm not sure when I will be posting them yet, but I have 4 more ornaments to share as well as a stocking gift card holder tutorial coming up ..... stay tuned!


AND ....  don't forget to join us Monday Sept 19th for the New Release Blog Hop where you will have the opportunity to win free stamps.  Want to see more new releases??  Check out the other LOC DT blogs ....  see the list and links in my side bar!


****  I did not create this template.  It is an origami technique that probably goes waaayyyyy back and who knows who created it.  I just want anyone to think I did.  I just wanted to create a tutorial to share with my readers ****

Project Details 
Stamps : Angelic art stamp set
patterned paper
Spellbinders : Classic Scalloped Circles Small
Grand Calibur
Glitter Glue : Glitz Stickles Champagne

Create 5 star ornament with patterned paper.  Ink peaks and valleys.  Cut scalloped circle using Spellbinders Scalloped Circles Small and Grand Calibur.  Stamp angel, color, and trim.  Adhere to scalloped circle and then adhere to ornament center.   Apply stickles around edges of the star and around edges of scalloped circle.  Create a small hole at top and string with gold cording.

Tutorial

Fold #1
Start with a 6x6 piece of paper.  Fold it in half.




Fold #2
Fold "Corner A" over to "B".  "B" is 1" down from top.


This is how it should look after you have made the fold.



Fold #3


Fold #4
This is what it looks like after Fold #3.  The dashed line shows you where Fold #4 will be.  Make the fold to match up "D" with "E".


This is what it looks like after you do Fold #4

Cut 
Make the cut as shown.


Trash the top half and begin unfolding your star.

You will have to reverse some of the fold lines.  I reversed my valley fold lines upward so I could ink them, then pushed them back down.  Ink the top folds as well.  I used patterned paper to create mine.  You will not be able to complete all the folds with thick cardstock.
