Step 3: Folding Top Right Corner
Similarly, fold the top right corner of the paper and bring it to the bottom edge to form a triangle. Crease it well and unfold the paper.
Step 4: Bringing Bottom Left Corner To The Cross
Now, you should get a cross on the right side of the rectangle. Bring the bottom left corner of the paper to the cross point.
Step 5: Folding Corner To Its Edge Itself
Next, bring the corner in such a way that its diagonal side overlaps the other side of the paper itself.
Step 6: Folding Bottom Edge To The Diagonal Side
Now, fold the bottom edge of the rectangle to the diagonal edge as shown in the above image.
Step 7: Folding In Half Outwards
Using the reference of the previous fold, fold the paper in half outwards.
Step 8: Cutting Paper
Using scissors, cut the paper along with the horizontal crease. Take the bottom part of the paper for further crafting.
Step 9: Unfolding Paper And Making Creases
Unfold the paper and you should get a pentagon shape with some creases. Flip the paper around and now you need to make a triangle by folding all the five corners of the pentagon along the creases.
To make a triangle, hold the bottom right corner of the pentagon and fold it along the upper right crease to hold the upper corner of the pentagon. Fold the triangle on the left side to hold the adjacent side. Again, repeat the same to fold the last side of the pentagon. Crease the triangles well by flipping the layers of the triangle.
Now, bring the top corner of the triangle to the middle of its base. Crease it well and unfold all the folds of this step.
Step 10: Folding Paper Along Small Pentagon Creases
After unfolding the paper, you should get a small pentagon in the middle center of the paper pentagon. Take the base of the paper and fold it upwards along the center pentagon base crease to the center point of the paper.
Now, create a diagonal connecting the center point and the diagonal on the bottom right by folding it using your fingertips, crease it well, and unfold it.
Step 11: Closing The Corner
Close the right corner of the pentagon using the crease of the small pentagon.
Step 12: Repeating The Folds On The Right Side
Repeat the same steps on the right side you performed in the last two previous steps.
Step 13: Repeating Folds On All Sides
Repeat these steps on all sides to form a flower shape. But this time, close both ends at the same time and turn down the last flap of the paper.
Step 14: Flipping Paper And Closing Flaps
Next, flip the paper model and close the left flap with reference to the crease by pushing it inward.
Step 15: Folding Next Flap Along With The First Flap
Fold the next flap of the paper with the reference of the crease along with the first flap to close the second flap of the paper.
Step 16: Repeating The Same With Other Flaps
Using the same process, close all five flaps of the paper. Crease it well from the top and sides.
Step 17: Folding Diagonal On Right Flap
Once the flaps are folded, you should get a trapezium shape. Fold a diagonal on the upper layer of the right flap.
Step 18: Repeating The Previous Step
Bring the left flap to the right and again fold the same diagonal as the previous one. Repeat the same by flipping the left flaps to the right and folding diagonals till the last flap of the paper.
Step 19: Folding Paper To Form a ‘V’ Shape On Top
Fold the top edge of the right flap to the bottom edge of the diagonal formed previously. Repeat the same on the left flap of the paper but there is no diagonal on the left flap. This will form a ‘V’ shape between the top of both flaps. Close the paper connecting both flaps. Repeating the same with the other four flaps.
Step 20: Creating Locks Between Flaps
Now, flip the paper and there should be a vertical crease line in the middle of the two flaps of the star shape. Bring that vertical line to the left side to meet it with the diagonal fold. Repeat the same on the other four sides. Next, fold these folds made to the right to lock them. Repeat them on all five sides. Turn over the star again.
