This technique is traditionally done with paper. We have adapted it using thin metallic leather strips for rings.
Before You Begin
Each star is made using four strips. If you are a beginner, it is helpful to try some practice stars with paper first: Start with the widest strips and choose the color you would like to use, then shade in one side of the strips. The shaded-in side corresponds to the shaded areas of the strips in the illustrations and will make it easier to follow along as you fold. Once you are comfortable with the technique, you will no longer need to shade the strips.
Fold each paper strip in half (shaded side in). Cut off the corners at the open ends to make points; the points will be trimmed later. Be sure to refer to the legend to become accustomed to the way the different areas of the strips will be identified in the instructions.
