How to Make an Origami star
This is a classic 5 pointed origami star that you've probably been drawing your entire life. Besides one slightly tricky fold, it's overall pretty easy to make. You will need two pieces of paper and some tape to make this.
|Step 1: Start with a square sheet of origami paper and rotate it like a diamond, color side up. If you only have regular paper, follow instructions to make a square sheet of paper.|
|Step 2: Fold the paper in half by folding top to bottom.|
|Step 3: Bring the left edge of the triangle to the top edge.|
|Step 4: Turn the paper over.|
|Step 5: Fold the triangle in half by bringing the left corner over to the right corner. Your origami should now look like this.|
|Step 6: Open the flap and squash down. Try to keep the right corner pointy as you make the crease, and keep the edges aligned at the top.
