- 2×8 large coloured squares
- 8 small coloured squares
- 8 small white squares
- 8 small gold squares
- a demo small rainbow star
- 3 step sequence demonstrator
- Note: the large squares can either be used to make large stars or be cut into quarters to make small stars (see demo small star)
(see white small star demo)
Step 1: Fold square in half to make a diagonal fold – then open it up again
Step 2: Fold sides into centre creating a kite shape
Step 3: Repeat on all 8 colours
Step 3: Glue corners of kite, as shown, with glue stick
The following sequence shows how to make a star and a star frame out of one square of any size.
For the sequence below use 8 squares in rainbow sequence or alternating gold / white sequence to make a star and glue the wide sections. Alternative if you glue the pieces on the thin section you need 16 squares repeating the rainbow sequence.
