    Tip
    It takes 4 strips of paper to make one Moravian Star so a pack of 50 strips can produce 12 stars. Experienced crafters can make up to 25 stars with the ¼ , ⅜ , and ½ strips by cutting the strips in half.

    Buyer Be Aware
    The 1" paper strips are JUST long enough to complete a German Star. There will be almost no excess paper to cut off after a star is complete. Some crafters use forceps to pull the paper strips through.

    The double-sided paper strips are 12½ inches long. If you buy papers that are greater than ½ wide, you will need to glue or tape two strips of paper end-to-end in order for it to be long enough to complete a Moravian Star

    The 1/16 and 1/8 paper strips are quite narrow! They are usually used in quilling projects.
