Lucky Star Origami

Lucky stars have a different meaning depending on how many you give at a time:
1 star: The only one
2 stars: Happy Couple
9 stars: Love for a long time
55 stars: Love you with no regrets
99 stars: May the friendship/love last forever
101 stars: You are the one
365/366 stars: Whole year of blessings
520 stars: I love you
548 stars: Can't stop loving you
999 stars: Endless love
1314 stars: Eternity of love
And a full jar of stars brings lots of good luck to the recipient :)

I made this jar for my boyfriend before he went to Japan for a rugby tournament to bring him and the team some good luck, but I really did it because I had too much fun making them and got carried away
Lucky Stars are super easy once you get the hang of them, but confusing at the start.
So here is a (hopefully) simple explanation of how to make these cute little stars

Your Materials:
♥ Scissors
♥ Pretty Paper*

*If you have pre-cut origami strips, than that is even better! You can get them at most Asian stationary stores, and I've seen them at big craft stores.

First: Cut your strips. You can make them as thick as you want, and that should dictate how long it should be; however, 1cmx14cm, I find, is a good size. You also want to make it longer than it probably needs to be in the beginning, because you could always just cut it down

Second: Fold one end of the paper strip over the other so that the coloured part of the paper is facing out

Third: Gently tie the slip of paper into a knot and then flatten it. Work at it till you get it tight, and in a perfect pentagon shape
This may take a while to get the hang of!
Once you're done that, fold down the piece of paper that is sticking out

Fourth: Start wrapping the strip of paper around your pentagon and then lightly creasing the paper. Just let the paper guide you! And if your pentagon starts looking more like a square than you know you did something wrong

Next: Make sure that you don't wrap around too much paper or else your star will be too stiff for the last step
Once you think you are finished wrapping, tuck in the excess paper into the little pouch you have formed.

This is the part that always confused me :)
Lastly: Use your fingernail to press into one of the sides of your pentagon. Do this gently, and it should puff up nicely. Do this again for every side.

And there you have your lucky star! Now have fun making them all the time, everywhere.

Tips and Other Things:
♥ This takes a while to get a hang of. Try experimenting with different types of paper. I find regular paper too flimsy, and card paper too stiff. Scrap booking paper works best in my opinion

♥ If your pentagon is getting too thick while you are wrapping it, just cut off the excess paper

♥ Don't give up on your first try! It takes practice, and it's easy once you get it

♥ By the way: I got that cute little glass bottle in the first picture from Michaels for 1$, which is crazy cheap for a store like Michaels!


♥ Another cute thing you can do is leave a little note in your lucky stars to make your recipients day! Just write a little note in each one after the knot stage!

  37. You have to keep up something which you may take a gander at donning at some point or another despite the fact that. Distributions which focus on design issues are a simple method to get styles specifically to your letter drop.
