    Step 3

    Now make a pencil mark on each piece at the four inch point top and bottom of each piece.

    Step 4

    Now score from the bottom left corner and the bottom right corner to the three inch point on the middle fold line.

    Step 5

    Now use the score lines to fold each of your star pieces.

    Unfold each piece, draw a line from the top centre point of the fold line down to the four inch mark near the bottom right corner.

    Step 7

    Fold in half and trim along the pencil line.
