Creative Project Episode 1 - Bracelet

Now I've folded a whole bunch of origami stars, and they look all pretty in a jar on my desk. But I think it's nice to do some crafty stuff with them, so today I made a bracelet.

How to make a bracelet out of paper stars:

1. You need: folded paper stars, thin elastic, a needle, and some varnish (optional).

2. Thread the needle with the elastic and start poking it through the stars. The easiest way is to first push through one of the 'dents' on the side and have the needle find its way to the point on the other side.

3. Once there are enough stars on your elastic, take the needle off, cut the other end off the spool, pull tight, and tie.

4. If you want to, you can make the stars a little more resistant to being on your skin all the time by spraying some varnish on them.

5. Admire your new origami lucky bracelet!
