'They're all a bit wonky mummy...'
And I had to agree (through slightly clenched teeth) - they weren't great. Where's a star stencil when you need one?
But then I remembered seeing how to make a paper star in an old 70's craft book I found in a charity shop.
So, I dug it out, and everyone had a go at making them, and once we'd got the knack, we were churning out paper stars of all sizes and colours. They're extremely quick and easy....just need to think of something to do with them all now!
Take a square piece of paper of any size
Fold it in half
Fold it in half again
Keep the folded point towards you and fold again
Still with the point towards you, fold once more.
Now cut off the point on a slant. It's worth experimenting a bit, because the sharper the angle, the pointer the star.
Back to the cardboard one that got us into star mode in the first place...there was just enough cereal packet left, so we stuck a christmas wrapping paper star onto the card and cut around it.
