    Cut a strip of paper from a magazine, wrapping paper, or anything else. Measurements depend on how big you want your stars to be... I used the height of a magazine and about 1,5 cm wide...

This is the first "star" tutorial that actually makes sense and works....and in the comments below there are some other helpful suggestions as well. These are beautiful. Can't wait to make a bunch and put on some string to make a mobile...I think it will look amazing. Thank you!

I thought these were impossible after about 100 tries! How? But then I figured out a few things and now I can make perfect ones! These are the things I found out: when you make the beginning knot, you don't press down and crease it like normal origami. Also- Keep wrapping until the WHOLE strip is used up! It should be PRETTY THICK by the time you are done. The strip of magazine I used for the best one I made was less than a centimeter thick! Another thing was I don't really have nails so using a coin to press in the sides was useful. These things helped me a lot. Hope they help you!
