These things are so much fun to make once you get the process down, you can make them with no tools other than your hands and any piece of paper. I make at least 5 of these every school day just out of scrap paper (doodles, handed back work, notes, etc.) Its an amazingly addictive way to reuse your paper and to keep yourself busy during those long days. You can also do these in the car, at the restaurant, on a plane, anywhere theres paper. But beware, these little bundles of joy can get on a teachers nerves faster than you can say Chicken Pot Pie, especially if you do things like throw them around the class or at your friends. I'm not your mother, but just know that I'm not responsible for any lunch detention you get as a result of these. Further more, lets get on to the instructions!!
Step 1: The First folds
You should start out with a peice of paper free of any rips or tears, the size doesnt matter, but a standard piece of 8.5 by 11 makes a good sized star. Its a good idea to have a flat surface like a table or a desk to do your folding on, it makes everything a lot easier.
Start out by laying your paper down and making a diagonal fold so the top and side of the paper match up, this should create a right triangle with an extra long bottom. Then flip over the paper and fold the extra flap down so it matches up with the bottom of the triangle. Crease the fold with your finger nails, and move on to the next step.
