Origami Stars

I try and make some sort of decoration every year. Often they are from salt dough but I've also used twigs, done paper snowflakes but this year I'm doing something I haven't done in years - origami. Here's the tutorial I used on how to make these stars.

My Origami Stars (from magazine pages)
I found the first two time consuming and fiddly. Definitely do NOT try and reuse any paper you've already folded! Start fresh each time cause the folds matter. But once you've done it a couple of times it gets easy. Very zen thing to do especially while watching tv.

Think I'll hang these from the frangiapani tree out front. Although there is a small chance of rain this time of year...
