And here are step by step photos if you weren’t quick enough to fold along with the video.
Seriously – all you need is a little more caffeine to go that fast, right!?
Begin with 5 rectangles (half a square)
Fold one rectangle in half the long way
Unfold and fold two corners in to meet the line
Fold one corner in on the other side
Fold your point in to meet that corner
flip the paper over and unfold that one corner
fold the two corners in to meet the center line again
repeat, folding in the two corners again
(it feels like a paper airplane)
flip the paper over again so you can see the pointed flap
fold the flat edge up under the flap
repeat, folding the edge up again
repeat again, creasing the fold tightly
make five more of these units
take two units, and notice the pocket here
slide one unit’s strip into that pocket
flip the units over
tuck the second strip into the back/point pocket
repeat with the rest of the units until all five are tucked into each other.
This star works perfectly with paper money.
If you are giving cash as a gift this is a lovely way to do it.
It looks just as pretty from the back.
