Lucky Stars

One of the perfect crafting activities to perform
whilst you are watching tv is the folding of
Lucky Stars or Dream Stars. In the diagram below
you find the explanation how you can fold them.
You can use paper you cut in strips from
magazine-pages or you can buy pre-cut strips.
I use the first variety of paper, the strips i cut
are 1 cm wide and 20 cm long.

The thought behind Lucky Stars is quite similar
to the history about the 1.000 Origami Cranes :
if you make them for a friend or a family-member
or just anyone you think can use some luck, they
will recieve luck or a better health or whatever it
is they lack. True or not, i feel that the giving of
Lucky Stars shows that the giver appreciates
the reciever and that they wish them all the best.
