Sheet Music Star

Photo Dec 16, 9 37 41 PM

At my most recent craft night with some co-workers, one of my friends taught us all to make paper stars from sheet music. They are super easy, and look very impressive.


6 pieces of sheet music (or any other paper you would want to use)

large and small glue dots


First you need to cut your sheet music into squares. Take all 6 of your squares and fold them diagonally. Then you are going to cut starting at the folded edge until you almost get to the middle. Do three cuts on one side, following a diagonal line, and then a mirror of those cuts on the other side. (see picture) There should be about an inch going down the middle that doesn’t get cut.

After you have made your cuts, open the pages up. You will work with them one at a time at this point. Take one of your papers and find a center corner. You are going to roll it up and put a small glue dot on the back. Roll the mirrored side up and attach them together.

Flip it over and do it with the next set. Keep flipping back and forth until you are done.

After you have made all six, you will be attaching three of them together. First lay them out so they are all “facing” the same direction. If you look close you can see one side is more “open” than the other. (see picture) Attach the bases with a large glue dot. Then attach the sides of the three pieces with small glue dots.

Do the same thing with the second set of pieces. Then you are going to attach the two halves together. Use a large glue dot to put the two bases together, and then attach the sides using small glue dots.

Then your star should be all put together! Put in a pretty place and enjoy :) Just to warn you, making them is slightly addicting.
