This is the first "star" tutorial that actually makes sense and works....and in the comments below there are some other helpful suggestions as well. These are beautiful. Can't wait to make a bunch and put on some string to make a mobile...I think it will look amazing. Thank you!

I thought these were impossible after about 100 tries! How? But then I figured out a few things and now I can make perfect ones! These are the things I found out: when you make the beginning knot, you don't press down and crease it like normal origami. Also- Keep wrapping until the WHOLE strip is used up! It should be PRETTY THICK by the time you are done. The strip of magazine I used for the best one I made was less than a centimeter thick! Another thing was I don't really have nails so using a coin to press in the sides was useful. These things helped me a lot. Hope they help you!

Adorable. I haven't tried it yet, but I suppose the pinching would be easier with magazine paper for the people who are commenting having troubles. =)

I love making these. If you want them to hang, tie the paper knot around a string which has been knotted at the end. Once you've folded it all up the string should stay put.

I made 10 white stars and wrote a letter on each of them
(GRATULERER =congratulations in norwegian)
and glued them to a blue A4 thick paper.
Made a big star which I wrote 18! on (and glued this on too), and 5 small stars to decorate with (glue again). and It turned out to be a nice birthday card for my friends 18th birthday.

You can get special pre-cut papers, but haven't found them yet where I live. (haven't searched hard). I used magazine paper and that worked pretty well, as long as I make them not too big... or else they will get floppy.
I made some with common printing paper which I marbeled, and that's perfect thickness I think. Bit more firm, so the stars are quite solid...
