1. Lay the first sheet of origami paper in front of you.

6. On each of the straight sides, cut along the line almost half way up as seen here. There will be a total of four cuts.

11. Take the right fold and pull it over the left fold to match the edges. Press together. Repeat this step on the other three points. For the final step, insert your finger in all four points to inflate the points from the inside out and give them dimension. Adjust creases if necessary.

12. This is now how the first half looks. Repeat steps 1-11 again for the second half. When finished, both halves will be adhered together on the flat sides in a way so that the star has eight visible points. To do this, add a drop of glue on each of the 8 inside corners on the flat side (the glue needs to be added so that it cannot be seen from the front side) and then carefully press both star halves together.
