  • ruler
  • stapler (optional)
Paper ornaments supplies
1. Print several copies of the pattern onto white paper. I used a glossy paper to make the stars more durable, but it didn’t fold as easily as regular paper. Shrink the design down on a copier if you want to make smaller ornaments.
Cut out the stars
2. Staple a few pieces of paper together at the edges (optional) and cut out the stars. For better accuracy, don’t try to cut more than three sheets at a time. You will need to cut 10 stars for each ornament.
Cut the ribbon
3. Cut the ribbon in 24-inch pieces.
Fold and place the ribbon
4. Stack 10 stars together. Fold the ribbon in half, then drape one side over the top of the stack and the other on the bottom of the stack. Leave a loop at the top about 1-1/2 inches long.Make sure the shiny side of the ribbon faces out.
Sew the stars together
5. Hold the ribbon straight down the middle of the star (point to point). Sew with a long straight stitch directly down the middle of the ribbon, back-stitching at each end. Make sure you stitch length is very long. If you use a shorter stitch length, the paper will perforate and tear along the middle.
Sewn star ornaments
6. The stars will look like this when sewn.
Fold and spead the layers
7. Fold the top five sheets along the center stitch and spread each layer out as evenly as you can. Repeat with the bottom five sheets.
