If everything works out grey and gloomy, decorate not only the Christmas tree, but also the window and get some color in your own four walls. Today we show you a cheap and original idea for Christmas decorations for window, namely star made of transparent paper. This paper is still called the Dragon paper and can flow through sunlight, what creates great light-color effects. Read on to learn how you can fold window stars. The craft of transparent stars is possible also with children.
First, each individual wave from a paper strip is folded, glued then all together. You can create different patterns according to the number and shape of the teeth. If the stars in the window are fixed and flooded with light, you can see the pattern exactly. You can use tracing paper in a single colour, or combine the colours. You need tracing paper, scissors, and glue stick to the crafting of these stars. Liquid adhesive does not go, because he throws waves.
First, you must decide how many points of the star is supposed to have. For a 8-point-star, you need 8 same strips of paper with dimensions 10 x 5 cm. You can also experiment with different dimensions, but the long side must always twice as long as the short. Fold the Strip in half and fold all four corners to the Center. Glue together all points, where each wave is created and fixed with adhesive on the other. Orient the axis to properly associate the spikes.
There are a lot of different stars, you can fold. You can experiment with the jagged shape and length for example with tips or try different long pips or different folding techniques. For example, this star was conjured up by using a template.
