Stars for the Christmas Tree
W ould you like to make some five-pointed stars to hang on the Christmas Tree, or to decorate the nursery or school room? I'll tell you how to do it.
You will have to look very carefully indeed at the pictures. Fold a piece of coloured paper in half, as in Picture i. Use coloured paper if you can. Silver or gold paper will make lovely stars if you can get some.
Now fold the paper as I have drawn for you in Picture 2. Can you manage that? Do you see the bit I have marked with a little star? You must now fold that bit backwards, so that your paper looks like Picture 3. Done that? Good! Now fold the right-hand piece back, so that you get the shape in Picture 4. Notice the two points at the top. They will help you to see that you have the right shape.
Now for the five-pointed star! Get your scissors. Cut across your paper where I have drawn the dotted line (Picture 5). Your paper is now in half. Take the bottom half and unfold it—and there is your silver or gold five-pointed star (Picture 6). Isn't it pretty?
If you can't fold the paper right at first, go on trying. You'll get the star in the end.
