How to cut a star with origami
What to prepare
Origami paper of your favorite color
Method and Procedure

Align the top of the triangle with the marker and fold it downward.
Fold the top part of the fold directly underneath to fit in the middle as shown in the picture.
Unfold it again and return it to the triangle that was folded in half at the very beginning.

Fold the triangle into a tulip shape, aligning the two ends of the triangle with the top parallel running edge.
Fold the left edge to fit at the right crease.
Fold the right triangle so that it goes around the back. The shape will look like the picture.
Cut at the line with scissors. The sharper you cut this line, the sharper and sharper the star will be, and the looser you cut the diagonal line, the softer and more round-like the star will be.
