Extra Large Stars Party Favors


Here is a twist on the origami stars, fill them with candy or small toys for party favors. I used wrapping paper that was 4 inches wide by 40 inches long. Avery loved these large stars and it wasn't too long before she shook them and realized there was a surprise inside. Here is my video on how to fold these stars.

  1. You are so clever! I think this is a great idea for small gifts and I always have skinny leftovers of wrapping paper.

  3. I never thought about making lucky stars this big before, it looks awesome! A nice way of whacking in lots of small items in one package. x

  4. Those are so cute! I remember kids in school making tiny ones like this but never thought about making them in jumbo size. Adorable!

  9. Hi,

    As I am trying to do them with wrapping paper they look kinda flimsy and its not picking the shape well (you know due to "not too many folds" the sides looking like falling apart a little) and in which pocket/how did you put the favors in :-P I put some candies and they went down to my feet :-/ need help

    1. Did you use some heavy weight or costly wrapping paper?

    2. Hi pinkorchid,

      The pink wrapping paper in the paper is very cheapy super thin wrapping paper. The key is making the paper super super long. Try cutting the paper longer or you could try practicing with smaller (thinner and shorter) paper first to get the hang of folding the stars. The candy goes into the first fold, as seen in the third image. You will have to hold in the candy as you make your next few folds, after the next few folds the candy will hold in place. Hope this helps!

  10. Thanks tons!!!! yes the smaller ones are perfect so is the 4inch longer strips, the 4 by 40 is somehow not working for me, think I will go with longer ones. I'm pretty new (2days old)in star making, so I hope it'll get better over another week. onen quick thing thouugh you know, the 30 times longer formula is not valid when the length is 40 for 4, isn't it (got that from ur cello star link)? Did I already mentioned you r great. loved your work.
