This instructional video shows you how to make origami lucky stars by cutting your own paper. While you can buy the strips of paper needed to make these 3D stars, I much prefer cutting my own strips. Obviously it’s cheaper, but this way I also get to determine what color / patter the paper will be and also I can augment the size of the star.
To cut your own paper, you can use a paper cutter or a ruler with a box cutter (just be careful!). For paper, you can use scrapbook paper, wrapping paper or even origami paper (if it’s long enough)… but I actually prefer to use old magazines or catalogs.
