As of 2015, sources for traceable star patterns include First Palette, Free Printables and Tim's Printables. These sites offer a variety of downloadable star templates for crafters and children to color, trace or incorporate into craft projects.
Children's craft website First Palette offers five-pointed stars in a number of sizes ranging up to 7.5 inches. The website also includes several sheets of fold-and-cut stars that allow the user to cut out several traceable star shapes at once. In addition to five-pointed stars, Free Printables also features 12-pointed and 24-pointed versions. Users can download and print the stars for free, and then cut them out to create traceable patterns.
Popular uses for traceable stars include homemade holiday cards, ornaments, wall decorations and bulletin board displays.
