To fold a paper star

by | Nov 23, 2020 | Design

Sometimes even I paint my nails.

I have a tradition. No, it has nothing to do with painting my nails, I like to keep them short and clean. The tradition is all about paper and all the wonderful things you can do with it.

Every year, starting November, just when fall is moving into X-mas time, I take out all my beautiful papers and start cutting stripes.

And then I start folding the stripes into paper stars. It all started with my grandmother Anna Lisa, then my mother Eva continued and here I am – folding the stars.

This year it is a little extra special. The rumor about my stars has spread. This is why I felt the need to paint my nails you see.

I got a phone call from someone in desperate need of a “paper-ninja”. They needed me to fold the stars while beeing filmed. Well, you simply can not say no to that can you?! I said “Yes!” and painted my nails.

If your hands are turning into moviestars they need to look smashing. Right?! I will tell you more about the project soon and maybe even show you some films. Hurrah!
