Wish upon a star

How cute are these little origami ‘lucky stars’?!  They are SO simple to make (even I can do it, and you know how un-crafty I am!).  I love that you can really personalise them, using paper and colours that coordinate with your scheme, or perhaps adding your initials.  Best of all, I love the idea of writing a little message on the inside, so that guests can open them like a fortune cookie and read something lovely, perhaps something a little inspirational, or just some words of wisdom…

You could put these at place settings, or in a big jar for people to help themselves.

I really love this idea, and hope you’ll have a go.  As always, if you do, please do send in pics – email them  or post them on our facebook page.

Here’s a youtube tutorial video (helped by the lovely JCB Song from Nizlopi!)…


If you prefer instructions by diagram rather than video, this one explains it well (though a quick google search for ‘origami lucky star’ will bring up hundreds of results).

Happy folding!
