Origami Stars

It’s bonfire night so I thought I’d make some origami paper stars.
I took a thin strip of paper about 1.5cm wide and tied it into a ‘knot’ then flattened that down into a sort of pentagon with tails.  Then I folded the little tail, then wrapped the long tail around the pentagon, turning it over each time until I was left with a little tail again and finally tucked that in.

Then I squeezed each point to make it more star-y.  It sort of worked!
