Apply glue along the bottom and middle of the first paper bag. Place the next bag on top of the first one. Glue this bag the same way as the first one and continue with the following bags until you glued all of the eight bags together.
Make your own unique design on the bag and cut through all layers of bags to form the tip and holes on the sides. Using hole punch make small holes to the sides. Punch semicircles, they will form round holes once the star is unfolded.
Glue a white ribbon to the middle line of the top and bottom of the stack. The ribbons are there to hang your star when you’re done. Use a sharp scissor to make a hole right through the middle of the star. Unfold the star and thread the string of lights through the hole and all layers of the paper bags. Distribute the LEDs evenly throughout the star.
Fold the star again and glue at both sides of the base. Unfold the star and glue the back to the front of the stack. Hide the battery section in the small compartment now formed at the top of the star.
Now tie the two ribbons together and you are ready to hang your star.
