Materials Needed:

  • white card stock
  • scissors
  • craft glue

Start Preliminary Folds

Start with a square of white card stock. Fold in half lengthwise, then fold in half again, widthwise. Then, fold across to create a triangle.

Mark and Cut Center Lines

Open the folded paper and mark halfway from the center of the paper, along the 4 center lines. Snip along each center line from the edge until you reach the marked points.

Create Star Shape

Fold each cut flap toward the diagonal fold lines. Repeat for all four sides until you get a 4-pointed star shape.
