Here's a neat trick your kids can use to dazzle fellow patriots on Independence Day: take a plain sheet of paper, make a series of folds, snip once, and, presto! You've got a perfect star.

What you'll need

  • Paper

How to make it

  1. Fold-and-snip Stars - Step 1

    Fold the paper in half from top to bottom, creasing it firmly.

  2. Fold-and-snip Stars - Step 2

    Fold the paper in half again, creasing it lightly.

  3. Fold-and-snip Stars - Step 3

    Undo the second fold.

  4. Fold-and-snip Stars - Step 4

    Make a third fold, bringing the tip of the upper right corner to the crease mark at the paper's left edge.

  5. Fold-and-snip Stars - Step 5

    Fold down the upper left corner along the top edge of the section you folded in step 4.

  6. Fold-and-snip Stars - Step 6

    Fold the paper vertically so that the left and right edges match up. Cut the paper at a sharp angle, as shown, creating a small triangle. Open the triangle, and there's your star.
