I have seen these stars in a few places, but I have been hesitant to make them because they are an intermediate craft. Do you think someone who is not a beginner, but by no means experienced could make these with little trouble? I feel like I might have to make several practice ones to get it right.

This project puts me in the mind of origami. I was never really good at it when I attempted it back when I first discovered the art of paper folding. These paper stars are beautiful and would make lovely decor in any home.

My oldest son would love this project. He may have already made this project or one like it as he was always folding paper when he was growing up. I will pull this out after Thanksgiving dinner and he can show me the ropes.

Where to find these papers? perfect combination for the holiday season. This craft looks difficult than other that I have tried. But I think it's worth a try.
