DIY Lucky Star Tutorial

This is the moment we've all been waiting for!! It's the origami star tutorial! Hope its helpful to you because it has detailed pictures and steps to go about making your very own lucky star.

First, find a long about strip of paper about the long side of a loose-leaf paper (you can cut a strip from a loose-leaf or use scrap paper).
This picture just shows you both sides of the origami paper (a side with pictures and a blank side).

You want to make a loop on one end just like a ribbon. Make sure that the side with pictures is on the bottom!

Here's a close-up of the ribbon.

Now, you want to keep a finger down to hold the paper steady.

Fold the tip in the loop to make a knot.

Use a finger to hold it down.

While holding the tip down, use your other hand and pull the long strip of paper in the direction of the arrow.

After you get a close enough knot, press it down and make a crease.
This is side 1.

Here is side 2.

Now you want to fold in the little piece of paper sticking out.

Flip the paper back over and this is how it's going to look like.

The line I drew on the tail is where you need to fold.

This is how it should look when you fold it in.

You continue folding it that way, while matching the corners.

Keep folding the paper until you reach a spot that you can't fold anymore.

Now, hold down the star and slip the left over tail into the folds.

Here is the final "fattening" process of the star.
Using your fingers, push each flat side of the star in to puff the star up.

After you puff up all the sides, you should have your very own lucky star!

If you have questions please leave your comments below.
Enjoy your lucky star and share it with your friends and family!! =]
