Mike had patiently helped me with these instructions. THANK YOU MIKE! =)
|Note: I chose a regular drinking straw for viewing ease during demonstration, but the straws I used here are actually about 18 inches long and only 1/4 of an inch in diameter. They are also tinted transparent straws, so the color becomes more intense as the straw star gets more layers of wrapping.|
|By now, a triangular pocket has been formed. Repeat the above steps until you have 6 triangular pockets.|
|There are now 5 corners forming the base of the straw star. Continue by wrapping the two ends around the star base in crisscross motion.|
To finish the star, insert one end into the outer layer of the next side to be wrapped. then cut the excess from both ends. The straw star is now secure on its own.
