December 15th - Fröbel Star

Albeit the Fröbel star originates in Germany, many Danes know how to fold this star and often believe, that this is a Danish tradition - I myself did not know about the origin until February this year. In most homes you will see various versions of the folded paper star: One year my mum folded 2 golden stars for every window in the house and it looked great, and everytime a car passed the house the light from the cards reflected in the windows/stars making them twinkle.

I just realised a couple of hours ago, that my interest in papercraft actually dates back to the age of 5, when I learned how to weave a simple heart and to fold Fröbel star.
