I think this is so fun and easy too. I posted a new video showing you how to make a perfect 5-point star out of paper with one snip of  your scissors. At the end of the video you will learn how to make a perfect star cut out in the center of your star.

Some say this was the way Betsy Ross cut the fabric to make perfect stars for the American Flag.


  • Use a  thin piece of paper like regular printer paper. If it’s to thick it will be hard to cut.
  • Paper size 8.5 in. x 11 in.
  • These make fun package decorations. Use the back to write a note.
  • Make star garland by stringing a bunch of stars together
  • Glitter glue makes it easy and fun for the kids to add a little sparkle to their stars

    I’ve watched this before, and I’m always blown away. Amazing. There is a baby shower with red, white, and blue colors. Stars would be perfect!

    Thank you for this great tip! I think that this will make my arts and crafts projects much much easier now 🙂 The star shape also can be used for many occasions
