Easy Paper Crafts: Five Point
Have you ever wondered how to make a perfect five point star? Here is an easy paper crafts projects that shows
how to make any size five point star with perfectly spaced points every time.
You can also fold the star to make it three dimensional. Here's an example using a Christmas card. (Take a look
at Easy Christmas Crafts - Five Point Star for how to use
a Christmas card.)

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Paper Crafts: Five Point Star:
The steps for making the five point star are simple. You need to make two concentric circles with the inner
circle's radius half of the outer circle's radius. Next, you need to divide the circle into five equal
sections. (A circle consists of 360 degrees. Each segment should have an inner angle of 72 degrees.)
First determine the radius and draw the outer circle.
Divide the radius by two and draw the inner circle. If you want the inner portion of the star larger, make the
inner circle larger.
In the third step, divide the circle into five equal sections. You can use a protractor
to determine a 72 degree angle. Or, print one of the patterns and use the lines on the pattern
to divide your circle into equal sections. Make sure the center points match before marking your
Begin drawing the lines for the basis of the five point star. Using the marks, draw a line from the outer circle
through the matching point on the inner circle and the to opposite side of the inner circle.
Finish drawing the five lines. The lines divide the outer circle into five sections and the inner circle into
ten equal sections.
In the final step, draw lines from the outer points to the end points on the inner circle. Each outer point will
have two lines going to inner points on either side. Similarly, each inner point will have two lines coming to it
from the outer points on each side.
