diy friday - lucky star wishing wand

There's a legend in Japan that if you fold one thousand origami cranes your wish will be granted.  That noble endeavor can take the average folder more than 60 hours!

Here's a short cut:  Fold a "fairy" tiny lucky star wishing wand and say the magic words! 

What you need:

- A strip of paper 1/2 inch x 11 inches.
- A cocktail stick or toothpick.
- An embroidery needle.
- Nail polish or paint.
- Ribbon and glue (optional).

What to do:

2) Paint the stick.  Let it dry.
3) Carefully poke a hole between two arms of the star.
4) Tie ribbons around the stick.
5) Optional - Put glue on the sharp end.
6) Insert the stick into the hole up to the upper arm of the star (don't poke it all the way through).

Make a wish!
