Paper Star

A great step-by-step on creating this paper star by SammyLou.

Project Files


  • Sheets of A4 cardstock (I used 5 for this star, but this is dependent on what you want the finished size to be)
  • Ribbon or string for hanging

Other Items Needed:

  • Glue
  • Tweezers (not necessary, but useful)
  • Large needle for threading ribbon

The Build

1: Cut 5 of the design in the LightBurn file out of your cardstock, using tweezers to get any trapped pieces out of the small designs. (Ensure you set the material thickness to the thickness of your card in LightBurn)

2: Fold over the engraved lines and glue the star points together one by one.

3: Once all points are glued and set, join them all together together to finish the star.

Note: If you would like to be able to fold the star away, leave one end unglued and use the ribbon to tie it together.
