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.
Step 2: Folding the Model
Take one of the squares and fold it like this...
(I'm sorry, but my English is not very good and I'm not going to explain. I think you'll understand how to fold the model only looking the pictures)
Then fold the other 5 squares the same way.
Here's a video:)
Step 3: Connecting the Models
Now it's time to connect the models.
Like you see each model has 2 points and 2 other sides. You must connect point from one model and other side from the other model. See the pictures.
And here's a video:
Step 4: Final Folding
The star is almost ready...just a few more folds...
Step 5: Add the String
Make a small hole on one of the tops of the star and get the string in. Make a knot and you're ready!
Step 6: Done!
Now you can put the star on your Christmas tree (like me) or somewhere else:)
