How to make

Step 1

Take 8 paper bags and using the glue stick, glue a line across the bottom of the first one then up the middle like an upside down T shape. Place the next bag on top, repeat this with all the bags, leaving the last one without glue.

Step 2

Cut a triangular point on the top of the bags, the point should be at the centre, but dont worry if the angle aren't perfectly even.

Step 3

Glue the front of the pile of bags in the upside down T shape again and then carefully unfold the star and join the two ends together,

Step 4

Cut a little slit in one of the points of the star and thread some string through to hang.

Your star is now ready to hang


For an added effect you could cut some shapes in the side to make a snowflake look
