Cut out the star design from design paper using a template. You will need two identical parts for each star.
Make a hole in the middle of the template. Place the template on top of the cut-out part and mark the middle with a pencil.
Score from the middle to each point with a blunt cross stitch needle. Fold along each score line from the point to the middle.
Place the two parts together, secured by the notches, with the backs facing each other.
Open a split ring and attach it onto one of the points. Thread a piece of cotton cord through the split ring and tie a knot. You may decorate with a wooden bead.
