Step 1 – make the star:
Cut  strips of paper +/- 12mm x 29,7mm. I’ve tried to make some bigger stars using the same ratio but they are not that “strong” than the smaller sizes.

The best result you get when you us thin paper with one coloured side.

Step 2:
Make a knot at the edge of the paper. Tighten knot gently and flatten.

Step 3:
Turn around. Fold the surplus of the paper inside the star. If it’s still too long, cut off.

Step 4:
Wrap the paper around all the sides of the pentagon, the paper will go in the opposite direction, keep wrapping, aligned with the sides of the pentagon, until you get to the end of your strip.

Step 5:
Fold the end of the paper inside. Your star has to look like a flat pentagon.

Step 6:
Push the sides of the pentagon, very gently and slowly. The easiest way is to use the side of your fingertops.
