Experiment with plain paper to find the angle of cut that produces the ideal 5 point star shape.
The small piece is the star (when unfolded).
Quite a bit of paper is cut away when you make the star. Don't waste that paper and ink:
- Use a plain hole punch or a decorative paper punch (such as one shaped like stars) to make confetti from the leftover edges after cutting out your stars.
- Run the cut away paper through your personal paper shredder and use the colorful bits for packing gifts, filling baskets, etc.
