How To Cut A Star Any Size Desired

Start with a square larger than the star is to be. Mark it “a,” “b,” “c,” “d,” like the first diagram.

Fold, placing “c” on “b.” Mark the center e, and divide the “c-d” line into fourths Fold “d” across the “a-b” line as indicated from “e” to top fourth in second diagram. Fold the right-hand half of this portion over the left half as indicated by the line in third diagram, bringing the edges even as shown in fourth diagram. Fold the extreme left-hand part back under the other two, keeping all edges even and producing diagram five. Cut as indicated by dotted line, then open.
