3. Cut along outline to make the stencil.

Step 3: Trace, Cut, and Fold Outline

1. Open up the cereal box so that it is flat and open to the matte brown side.
2. Trace with a marker around the stencil on the two largest sides of the cereal box.
3. Cut out the stars with a box cutter.
4. Take a bone folder to the glossy (back) side of each star and make folds from each of the five points to the opposite inner vertex.

Step 4: Tape Two Sides Together

1. Line up the two folded stars back to back.
2. Using 3/4" or thicker masking tape, center align ten 2.5" strips of tape along each side of the star and fold down and cut off stray edges.
