Step 3

Along the folds you made in step 2, make 2 1/2-inch cuts (or almost halfway to the center of the paper).

For each point, fold in the sides to meet the diagonal fold line, as shown.

Step 5

Apply the glue stick on one of the triangular flaps and press the matching flap on top so that it lines up with the bottom. Repeat for each poin.

Step 6

Repeat the steps to make a second paper star. Tie a knot at the end of a length of string and place it inside a corner of one of the stars, as shown. Use a drop of tacky glue to secure it. Hold one star against the other to see where the two touch, then apply dabs of tacky glue to those spots. Press the stars together and let the glue dry before hanging the star.
