To make your paper barn star you will need:
- 5 square pieces of paper in the size and style of your choice: cardstock, patterned paper, vintage paper will all work, but thicker paper works best. For this example I used double sided patterned paper from Crate Paper and cut it to 3 inches x 3 inches.
- Adhesive. I prefer permanent tape adhesive but a glue stick would work just fine.
- A bone folder (not necessary but extremely helpful)
- A water based sealer such as mod podge to protect the end product and give it strength.
I liked it so much I made this larger version for Kia's room, I'm still in the process of sealing it with multiple coats to give it some durability. This one is for my tree, as I'm still without a topper (because I can't find one I love) this will suffice for this year. Hope this made sense, please ask any questions you need for clarification! Plus did you spot the warpy photos of me reflected in the gold ball of the Christmas tree. I left that there just for you, to remind you that I'm a meathead. :P
