On Friday November 27th, 2015, for the Sanford Art Walk, I will be in front of Gallery on First demonstrating how to make these. If you’d like to make your own, stop on by, or read/view the following. They really are easy to make, once you get the hang of it.
There is a great online tutorial here: http://80thbirthdaypresents.org/polish-star-christmas-ornament.
You can read more online directions here:
And here is a YouTube Video showing detailed instructions: https://youtu.be/7JXWXG3hsRg.
Paper and size: You can use various types of paper and sizes, but you don’t want the paper to be to thick or it’ll be hard to roll. Here’s what we’ve used”
- Origami Paper: comes in 6″x 6″ squares, bright colors, and can be found at many craft stores as well as online. It is easy to fold and cut with minimal waste.
- Gift wrap: foil works especially well, but any give wrap will do. A good way to recycle, too.
- Magazine Photos: Yes, you can even use magazine photos, they work quite well, actually. The one closest to the top right corner of the photo above is one made from magazine pictures.
- Send me your suggestions, I’d love to try something new.
