Make a 3D Paper Star with Krokotak

My little girl was given a couple of these by her nursery, her talented teacher made them, and apparently they are much easier to make than they look. I think they would make a lovely mobile in different colours, or cut out from kids magazines.

So I found a tutorial on the wonderful Krokotak site, and wanted you to have a small crafty stocking filler… xo

They only look complicated, but actually do not take more than 10 minutes of your time.

Cut 8 square pieces of paper. Fold each one as shown on figures 1, 2 and 3. Snip twice as shown on figure (4) then unfold the piece. It must look like the one on figure 5. коледна звезда от хартия

Glue opposite corners together, turning the paper each time.
