Hi, my name is Ana. I'm an art student and origami expert. Today, I'm going to show you how to make an origami star. So, for this project you will need a square piece of paper. I usually recommend to have color on both sides. Okay, for this project we're going to use two papers, two squares, same size. We're going to start by folding it in half. We're going to do the same thing with both of the papers. So, now we're going to fold in half again and close it. We're going to do the same with this other paper, open it and fold each side in half, then close it. Okay, now what we want to do is bring each of these corners here to create a triangle. We're going to do the same here in the opposite direction, very well. Now, we're going to do the same here, but we want to make sure they're facing the opposite way as the previous one, like this. That way, this is going to go like this. Okay, now we're going to bring this up and fold it so that we create a triangle. The same thing with this towards the other side. You want to turn the paper so that you see that both edges are meeting. Crease your folds, perfect. Now, let's just bring this triangle like this. This is going to help us lock the two pieces together. Okay, now we're going to bring this inside this pocket. Okay, so you put it from the flat side, not the one with the folds, and this one like this, tuck it inside, same thing here, just leave that flat, put it inside and close. Now, turn and we're going to do the same thing here. And that's how you fold a star. Thank you for your time. See you next time.
