How to make Simple Origami Star Tutorial
Simple Origami Star Tutorial
Sometimes you need to make a fast paper star, so why not use some origami techniques and use a square piece of paper to get the perfect star.
This simple origami star is great for teaching kids, because you can also teach them how to make pentagons using this method.
These origami stars have a three-dimensional appearance on them. You can hang them up as decorations, especially at Christmas time. They will make great Christmas tree decorations.
You can also use this method to get stars of different shapes by changing the cut at the end.
First, get some square paper, it is recommended to start with at least 15 x 15 cm paper. If you want both sides of the paper star to look good, try looking for some colored paper on both sides.
Tip: For best results, remember to make the creases as tidy as possible!
1. Starting from the paper side up, fold the bottom edge up to the top edge.
2. Next, move the lower left corner up and to the right, aligning the top edge, and if you fold the crease completely, make a small mark in the center of the crease.
3. Do the same for the top layer in the upper left corner, move it down to the right, and mark only the center.
4. You can see an X in the center of the left side of the paper. Fold the lower right corner to the center of the X and crease.
5. Fold the left side of the top to align it with the right edge.
6. Next, fold the left edge of the lower right corner to the right to align it with the left edge of the right part.
7. Now fold the mountain and fold the left part back along the edge of the right part.
8. Pick up the scissors and cut along the dotted line.
(To make a pentagon, cut along the top of the front flap.)
9. Open the paper.
10. To make the stars more solid, fold the points together so that the creases are between the valley folds and then fold along the folds of the Star Mountain.
You can make the origami stars sharper by refolding the corners and cutting at a sharper angle. Or make the star bigger by cutting at a smaller angle of inclination.
