STAR CARD

Well, another late night for me because I just had to make this card.  Happen to run into the Star Card while visiting craft blogs and from there the search was on to find a tutorial.  Found several tutorials and instructions on line but the measurements were in centimeters, ladies with British accents.  Finally ran into  a very sensible woman who figured it out without a lot of measurement...love her!  So here is the card and, while not a fancy tutorial, at least an idea on how I made it.  Play with it...



 Cut 12x12 card stock to measure 10 x11-1/2.  Find center, along the longest measurement and cut from center to each corner as shown above.
  
 You now have a triangle, fold tip of triangle to center bottom of paper, crease and open fold.
 Fold side corner as shown, crease and open fold, do the same with the left corner tip.

You now have a triangle in the center of the paper.

Measure 3/4 inch, as shown, on each triangle.  Score and fold into center triangle, creating the tip of the star.


This is what it will look like when finished.  To create the star, fold left side in, fold right side on top, fold top down and tuck left corner of top into the left corner of the left triangle...as I said play with it until it works out.   Hope the pictures help.  HAVE FUN!!!

While perusing Pinterest this afternoon I ran across a link to this Fancy Fold card and after a couple of trial and errors I achieved a measure of success.  So try it for yourself, here is the link
