This so intrigued me and I desperately wanted to know how it was done. No one I asked knew. This was before the internet too.
It was not until my children were young and I was watching a children's TV program with them that I discovered the magic.
I have created this tutorial to share it with you.
The history behind the 5-pointed star on the American flag is interesting too. Apparently George Washington drew a flag that had 6 pointed stars on it as it is said he preferred this option. However Betsy Ross recommended a 5-pointed star. It was not favoured as it was thought it was too difficult to make. Upon which Betsy took a piece of paper and folded it. She then made one cut with the scissors a produced a symmetrical 5 pointed star. It was so impressive that the committee agreed to use her 5-pointed star on the American flag.
Here is how it is done......
I hope you enjoy the magic as much as I do.
