Origami Lucky Pirate Stars

Another tutorial, this time on how to make Origami lucky stars! These are really easy to make, all you need is a strip of paper (roughly about 30cm long and 1cm wide).

Here are the instructions (I got the diagrams from another website http://www.origami-fun.com/origami-lucky-star.html

Starting with a strip of paper (30cm long and 1cm wide). Make a 'knot' at one end of the strip of paper.

Once you have made the 'knot', pull gently on both ends of the paper to tighten. (Make sure one end is much shorter than the other). Then flatten.

Fold the short end of the strip down and tuck it into the knot. (If it is too long, cut a bit off).

Now wrap the long end of the strip around and around the pentagon shape you have formed. Gently creasing as you go.

Keep wrapping the strip around until you reach the end. Tuck the last bit of the strip into the pouch and you should be left with a little pentagon.

Now pinch the edges to turn the pentagon into a star.
