Free origami stars Christmas decoration video tutorial

Thanks so much to bookbinder Cass Barron for doing a live 'make-a-long' as part of our online Open Day this year! If you missed it don’t worry - you can still get creative and make some Christmas decorations by watching the replay.

In this free tutorial, Cass shows you how to make a series of origami 'pages’ and how to glue these together and finish them off to create lovely up-cycled decorations. These make great decorations for your home, but they also fold flat so can easily be posted to friends and family - a nice alternative to a Christmas card and great way to use up odds and ends of paper.

You will need -

⭐ Some decorative paper - for example, last year's wrapping paper, old book pages, maps (enough for several 10cm x 10cm squares)

⭐ Ruler

⭐ Pencil

⭐ Glue stick

⭐ Scissors

⭐ Thread or thin ribbon for hanging

⭐ Bonefolder & an awl (If you have them but don't worry if not, there is a work-around in the tutorial)

⭐ Mulled wine & mince pies - optional but recommended!

Thank you to all those that shared what they created live during the make along - Julie Galante, Lynn Powell and @ediemoonbeam. We loved seeing your creations! If you do make your own please share them with us by tagging us on Instagram @arienas_collective so we can feature them.
