lucky stars

4

Okay, guys, here it is!  This was the instruction booklet I received with my very first star strip kit, which I bought in 2010 from Klutz, a subsidiary of Scholastic Inc.  (This kit, for whatever reason, has become criminally expensive, at least on Amazon.com.)  Unlike other star-folding tutorials, it does not instruct you to knot the paper at the start, but to simply fold it backwards into itself.  This, I feel, is a much better strategy, as you don’t risk your paper ripping or tearing.

For some reason, my scanner (got it working!) cropped out step 11–this is the step where you tuck the last little nub of paper into your pentagon, in preparation for the crimping that comes afterwards.  (The numeral for step 9 is also missing, although the step itself is there, so no worries.)  If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

A WORD OF WARNING: ORIGAMI STAR FOLDING HAS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE PROPERTIES, AND IT IS DIFFICULT TO QUIT ONCE YOU START.  It also requires tons of patience, full use of your fine motor skills, and just a touch of madness.  PLEASE FOLD AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Other than that, enjoy!

Ten thousand stars just for you both,
Ten thousand hours I’ve spent making them all,

Ten thousand years it’ll take Ŧ̧̤̭́๏̸̨̳г̸̷̵̟̲̳͎̭͖ͅ ̷̡̙̩͝๓̢̗є̠͕̼̦̠ ̟̥̖̲́͞t̷̢̺̰̥̝͝๏̗̼́ ̢̗̼̱̟͔̬͓̗๓̢̯̩̤̟̱͉̼͚͢ค̴͔̜̩̱͎̰к̡̲͚̹̯̭͔͕ͅє̥̜̝͓͠ ̖͕̺̖̫̪͉ค͏̪͈̼̞̦̫̼ ͏͕̜̫̞̙̥ς̞͝ђ̸̙̜̦๏̳̱̞̣͕͟ͅเ̷̡̻͍̣̩̞͇͎͎͚͝ς̨̳͕͍̥є̰̱͚͙̳͍̬͠.
