The link for the tutorial I followed to make the star ornaments is http://www.scraplovers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6245. Basically you just take a 6" x 6" square of paper, score at 1" intervals, fold accordian style, and put a staple in the middle. Then while it's still folded up you trim both ends to a point. Put a little sticky strip near the staple on both sides, fan it out, and stick it together (my directions don't do it much justice -- visit the tutorial via the link for a much better description).
I took a button, threaded it with raffia, and attached it with a glue dot.
I punched a hole in the back and threaded through stitched grosgrain ribbon as a hanger.
I will use these stars as package toppers for my Christmas gifts.

I think I've found the ornament for my 7/8th grade art students to make this year. They really enjoyed the origami we did one week, so this will be a hit with them, I'm sure. Thanks for sharing (and including the link to the tutorial)!
