Take a square sheet of paper and fold it in half.
Open, turn it a quarter of the way around, and fold it in half again.
Open and flip the sheet.
Now make a diagonal crease.
Open and fold it diagonally the other way.
Turn the paper over and fold inward, like this, to get a triangle.
Once you have this triangle, fold this end onto the center line, like so.
Fold only one part at a time.
Then repeat for the other three sides.
Be as accurate as possible to create a nice, neat star.
The next crease is a simple one, but you have to fold in the right direction.
Open the four creases you just made and fold the other way, like this.
You should now have this shape.
Look at the bottom, and you’ll find an opening. Widen it, then fold like this to get a square shape in the center.
Now lift up the top.
Adjust the two upper spikes to finish your origami star.
