I'll show you how to make a nice 3D star from paper. It's perfect for a Christmas decoration...or a gift:)

Step 1: Materials

You'll need 6 equally squares of paper and some string or thread.
I've used red paper squares 9x9 cm, but you can use bigger or smaller...your choice.
I know it's been a couple years since someone has commented on this, but I have to say that this is my favorite one so far. I started getting into origami a couple months ago, and this was easy. The written instruction was easy to understand and the visual aids were very clear. Mine came together very nicely, without any problems. Great job!
Thank you for the nice words :)
this is fairly easy and I think i am going to make several to hang around my house for christmas.
Personally, I find it easier later on when I do two diagonal folds at picture 3, with the second at right angles to the first. 
I've seen this project before! If i wasn't wrong it's on John Montroll's Origami book called Origami for the Enthusiasm
this isn't John Montroll's star its made from 6 pieces of paper John's version is only one piece of paper.
Oh I see, sorry 'bout that! It's just.. Similar with John's..
some pics of the connecting would be nice, i cant view the vids here but those look awesome!
I'll add as soon as possible!
