Christmas Countdown: 49 Days ~ How to Make a Book Page Star Ornament

We've got a handcrafted ornament you’re going to love today! It’s super quick, super easy, and super cute – can’t beat that, can you? And it goes with any other book page or music sheet decorations you might have made. In other words – we’ve got a theme goin’ on.

You'll Need

  • 9 – 3 x 3 inch squares of old book pages.  (I used a falling-apart old hymnal.)
  • String for hanging
  • Good glue ~ something stronger than a glue stick will be needed
  • Shiny bobbles for centers (or buttons might look neat, too!)
  • Double sided tape to stick on the shiny centers

Step One

Fold the 8 pieces that will be your star points.  Here is a tutorial to show you how:

Step 2

Once you’ve folded all 8 star pieces,  glue them onto the 1 piece of 3 x 3 inch paper you have left, “nestling” them up against each other.  Don’t forget to glue down your hanger string first (like I did!)…

Step 3

Once they are all glued down, tape down your center piece with double sided tape.

Happy folding!!
