EASIER DOUBLE-SIDED STARS

 

1 Finish coloring the stars.

2. Cut out the 4 stars.
3. Punch the hole in each star.

4. Choose 2 of the stars and put glue on the back of one- be sure to get glue on the star tips. Put the 2 stars you have chosen back-to-back matching the hole and the star points. (White glue may slide easier. Glue sticks are less messy with glue at the points- but you have to work faster.) 5. Put the yar through the star hole and around a small jar or can or smooth container. Tie the yarn around it in a knot and slip it off. This prevents you frm making the loop too tight. Trim.

OLDER GRADES FOUR-SIDED STARS

1 Finish coloring the stars as you wish.

2. Cut out the 4 stars.
3. Punch the hole in each star.

4. With the punched hole at the top, fold the stars in half with the colored side together. Match the star points for a perfect half. 5. Fold all your stars.
6. Choose 2 of the stars and put glue on 1/2 of the back of one star - be sure to get glue on the star tips. 7. Glue HALF of two different stars together.

9. Glue the two half sets together. Watch the hole in the top! 10. Put your yarn through a hole. Bring the yarn around a bottle or can and tie the yarn in a knot. 11. Cut off excess yarn and you're done.
