Many remember these fascinating stars from their childhood. My easy, video is one of the most popular posts year round but especially as we near the holidays. I have received many comments from people who were able to finally create the these little stars by watching and following the video.
And once you create your first star, you will be so excited to make more!

German Star Gift Card
I have created an updated version of German star gift cards in various sizes. The bundle includes two different images in three different formats.
- There is one that is folded like a card.
- One that is a half-fold similar to a blank card leaving the inside to write a note or greeting.
- And, there is one that is like a 5 x 7-inch postcard. Sign or write on the back, if desired.
The gift card bundle is FREE. Just print it out at home or have it printed at your local office supply store.
Best printing for For German Star Card
For the best quality, print on cardstock. Usually I make copies using the self-serve printers in the copy center at Staples.
But, when I compared the copies to the ones I have the associate print, I find a big difference in color quality. The cost per page is just a little more than using the self-serve machines but I think it is worth it.
