You can easily make these Christmas stars with glossy paper.
They only look complicated, but actually do not take more than 10 minutes of your time. Cit 8 square pieces of paper. Fold each one as shown on figures 1, 2 and 3. Snip twice as shown on figure (4) then unfold the piece. It must look like the one on figure 5. Glue opposite corners together, turning the paper each time.
Glue together all eight parts into a star.
