Start with the paper. Any ordinary printer paper will do, preferably double sided, but it won't make much of a difference if you're neat.

Fold paper in half longways

Fold it in half again (longways again). Crease REALLY well, because you're going to cut the paper into four strips.

Okay, if you've never made a star before, I'd advise you to practice making stars with regular sized star paper. (How many times did I say star?!)

You can check out other guides on making regular stars (http://snapguide.com/guides/fold-an-origami-wishing-star this one is ok; type in 'origami star' in the search box.)

My vid may be a bit confusing, so you might like to learn how to make a star somewhere else... Otherwise, try following the video slowly! Might help!
