First you need to cut your paper. The strips are about 1cm wide and A4 length(18.5cm) long.

Step 3: Making the Core

After you have your strips cut it's time to make the core. To make the core just take one strip and tie a knot, then flatten the know. It should look like a pentagon now, next fold the tiny remaining strip in the "pocket". After you are done with that you can write a message, riddle, secret, etc.

Step 4: Making the Star

Now just wrap that strip tightly around your core, Make sure that the message is facing inside or else they will be able to read it with out opening the lucky star. Then when the strip ends cut of any extra paper and tuck the rest of the strip in the pocket.
