Superstars: Make a Galaxy of 3D Paper Stars
From bestselling author and expert in paper and art crafts, Paul Jackson, comes this eagerly awaited new project, Superstars.
Create a galaxy of amazing 3D stars and other geometric shapes with these pre-cut and scored sheets. Superstars are simple and quick to fold; based on geometrical solids, the forms are surprisingly sturdy. You can make large and impressive decorations (bring on Christmas!) as well as using the kit as a craft activity in itself - they can be taken apart and used again as many times as you like! Featuring simple instructional videos instead of complex written instructions, these superstars will absorb both experienced paper folders and enthusiastic amateurs.
Superstars comes with an accompanying booklet that contains easy to follow steps, QR codes, illustrations and photos. The booklet explains the structure of 17 superstars, though there are countless others you can design for yourself as you become familiar with the techniques. The series of online videos that accompany the pack show in detail how to fold the units, how to assemble the basic pyramids and how to make superstars from 6, 12 and 30 units.
