Origami lucky stars (English)

While folding this stars, i’ve got Madonna’s ‘Lucky star’ in my mind. ‘You must be my lucky star”, because that’s what they’ve been called, lucky stars.

You fold the origami lucky stars from thin strips of paper and in an evening you have your own pot full stars. Nice as give-away for someonie who could use a little luck. You can use them to wrap a present . Or use them as decoration on your  christmas dinner table.
