A Single Snip Star
Step 1. Fold an 8-1/2" x 10" piece of paper in half.
Step 2. Fold and unfold in half both ways to form creased center lines. (Note: be sure paper is still folded in half.)
Step 3. Bring corner (1) right to meet the center line. Be sure to fold from the vertical crease line.
Step 4. Bring corner (1) left till edges coincide, then make the fold.
Step 5. Bring corner (2) left and fold.
Step 6. Bring corner (2) right until edges coincide. Then fold.
Step 7. Bring right edge AC and the left edge AB together, crease, and unfold. Join points A and C, crease, and unfold.
Step 8. Cut on the angle as shown in the picture (from point C, through the intersection of the fold lines from step 7, to the left edge). Then unfold the small piece.
Step 9. Marvel at your perfect (we hope!) 5-pointed star! If your star is not perfect, take a fresh piece of paper (8-1/2" x 10" — not 8-1/2" x 11") and try again!
I think this is a great way to commemorate this month and I encourage you all to dress up your Home Sign with this free star feltie in honor of this great Nation.
