These pretty stars look complicated but are so easy to make, promise. Gather up eight paper bags, a glue stick and a pair of scissors.
1. Glue the bags on top of one another. Clip off the open corners. Don’t worry if your cuts are uneven.
2. Open the star and tape the outside bags together. (After the party, carefully remove the tape and store the star for future use.)
