Star albums are awesome mini albums that open up into a star shape that you can open and display nicely on your mantle. If you add a ribbon closure it will sit nicely and makes a great talking piece around the coffee table. They are heaps of fun to make as well but they can  take up a fair bit of of your cardstock and patterned paper so make sure you have plenty before you get started.


1.  Trim 6 sets of the following 3 pieces and fold each piece in half as shown in the diagram star album instructions 1
