Making Paper Stars

We use all homemade decorations round here and one of the traditions for the first week of Advent is to   put a transparent tissue paper star in each window of the house.

There is a good tutorial about how to make these over at this website:-

You can use tissue paper, but then you have to cut it into squares yourself, or you can order books of kite paper which come ready cut and are a slightly stronger paper which makes it easier to tear if you want to make smaller stars.

We always back the stars with book covering film as that way they do not get damaged by condensation on the window and you can keep them from year to year.
