The inspiration for these stars is taken from some large metal stars that I spotted in a reclamation yard—rusted and weathered, but beautiful nevertheless. Ours are made from mirrored card but old greeting cards would work extremely well here. This star can be hung individually on a Christmas tree or make several and hang at different heights in a cluster at any time of year, party or no party.

You Will Need
Turn the stars over and, following the template, use a metal ruler and pencil to drawn the straight lines from the points to the center on the back of the star. Make sure your lines meet exactly at the mid-point of the star (otherwise you’ll lose the crispness of the form). Turn your star over and lightly draw in the shorter lines, from the inverted corners to the center.
Using a little force with your fingers, squeeze and fold either side of one of the longer scored lines so that they are pushed backward. Do this on all five points. Then turn over and repeat on the shorter lines.
