  1. 1

    Cut both sheets of paper into a square, keeping the sides 6 inches at length.

  2. 2

    Fold your paper diagonally, so the corners touch. Reopen the paper. Turn the paper around so the bottom of the paper is now facing you.

  3. 3

    Fold the paper in half, horizontally. Open the paper. Fold the paper in half vertically. Open the paper again.

  4. 4

    Cut the paper on the vertical and horizontal lines. Cut halfway up the lines.

  5. 5

    Turn the sheet around and fold every corner. Fold corners to the crease line. This will form a triangle.

  6. 6

    Glue each triangle half to the other. Do this for both sheets of paper.

  7. 7

    Glue each star half together so that they cross each other. Your folded 3D star is now complete.
