    Paper Widths and Star Dimensions
    Patterned paper strips are 23¾ inch long. Different width of paper makes different sized stars as follows:
    Size of Paper
    1/4"
    3/8"
    1/2"
    5/8"
    3/4"
    1"
    Size of Star
    1" wide
    1.5" wide
    2" wide
    2.5" wide
    3" wide
    4" wide

    It takes 4 strips of paper to make one Moravian Star so this pack of 50 strips can produce 12 stars. Experienced crafters can make up to 25 stars with the 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" strips by cutting the strips in half.

    Warning: 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.
