*This may look familiar to some of you!  A few months ago, I was a guest blogger on Waiting on Martha (Stewart), and unfortunately, since then, the blog has been taken down.  I have no idea why, and many of you are asking for the origami star directions, so I thought I’d post them here.

These made the perfect decorations for my monogrammed cookie jars!  Take a look here: Etched Glass Cookie Jars!

    Thanks for the post! The star is lovely.
    I believe there is one step missing – the sixth photo is the same as the fifth.

    Where did you get your paper ? It is beautiful !

      Thank you, Jo’Keah!
      The paper in the very top picture is just wrapping paper! It was white on one side, so I just spray glued two sheets together, so there was pattern on both sides!
      The paper in the step-by-step pictures is just light weight scrapbooking paper!

    I don’t understand the steps required in the third photo. How do you fold the paper like that? The directions are a little vague for an inexperienced origami folder like me. Help?

    Hey…i remember these origami stars!!! Are they from way back at the Oak???

    • Nikki says:

      You know it, Sandy!
      Who would have thought my little “keep the kids busy the day before Christmas break” project would still be such a hit?!?!
      PS…Miss you! Hope all is well! XOXO
