You'll need 8 square pieces of paper for this project, I'm using little glossy origami squares that I got from the News Agency for about $2.50 [Go to next slide]

I used 12.5cm, 5 inches by the same amount, and the finished star, when its in its spiky form was 18cm, 7 1/5 inches, by the same amount. When it's in it's smooth edge form its 15.5 cm, 6 1/5 inches
