I originally posted about this project and how we added it to our notebooking project here, but I've collected a few more pictures, resources, and instructions over the past couple of years, so I thought I would share some more details on how your classroom could make this cool project.
First, I collect our needed supplies, most importantly (and expensively), the gold paper. You can see that I have a collection of scraps that we reuse for small pieces. I have found that the cheapest way to provide gold paper for all the students is to buy large pieces of gold poster board and cut them down so that six or eight students can use them.
This year I had the students make a separate pattern on a 6"x6" square of paper. We talked about symmetry and folded the paper horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to help create a pattern for radial symmetry.
Fulton Sheen quote about the Eucharist and attached it to the bottom of the art. Here was our bulletin board this year with the completed projects:
If you would like to make this project yourself, I have a few printable resources here:

We lost our bulletin boards this year, so here is another display option using a classroom door:
