Make Extra Large Star Party Favors

Make a Recycled Cellophane Origami Star Garland

No, these beautiful stars aren’t made out of glass.  Or crystal.  They’re not even acrylic.  They are actually made out of recycled cellophane!  (Are you having the same OMG moment that I had when I saw them?)  Rena from The Cheese Thief folded the glass-like stars using strips cut out of the packaging from some note cards.  Imagine the strung across your windows, used as …

Recycled Newspaper German Star Wreath

Wow, amazing! This German Star wreath by Linaloo is made of recycled newspaper, and is oh-so-amazing! It might just unseat last year’s Origami Ball Wreath for folded paper holiday brilliance! I want to try it. Linaloo says each star takes about fifteen minutes to fold, and the entire wreath took her about two hours folding time. I’d say that’s a good investment for such a …
