    FYI
    It takes 4 strips of paper to make one Moravian Star so a pack of 50 strips can produce 12 stars. A pack with 100 strips can make 25 stars.

    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.
