2. Cut out your pieces 
Carefully cut out each of the star parts on the cutting surface.

3. Fold
Time to fold! Follow the dotted middle lines, and make sure each one is creased.

4. Get glueing!
There are orange numbers on each part of the star. Start gluing the small flaps on each side, and follow the number order to build it. Small numbers on flaps will help you not to get confused!
