Christmas tip - Froebel stars and bows from Melinex or excess gift wrappings

Mariana Escamilla made a Froebel star (right) with excess wrapping paper. Julia Wagner made a bow for her Christmas gift out of (clean) coated Melinex (left). Why not do the same with scrap paper from your lab or office? Mariana also made a delicate version of the star using her tear-mending tweezers!
