How to Fold 5 Pointed Stars

| More

In this post I’m going to show you an easy way to fold a 5 pointed star.   The stars in the blue field of the American flag are five-pointed.  It was Betsy Ross who convinced General Washington that it was a simple matter to cut a five-pointed star from a folded sheet of paper or cloth.  These 5 pointed stars are great to use to not only make a flag, but to decorate Christmas trees, packages, boxes, cards, toy crowns, and play costumes.  So, grab some paper and a pair of scissors and let’s get started.
