Cut your paper in half.  You need 6 sections for each star, so 3 pieces of paper cut in half will make 6 sections.

With one half, fold the corner to make a triangle and cut off the excess paper and discard it.  You will now have a square piece of paper.

Flip the square piece of paper over.  Repeat above gluing steps with the next set of cut triangles.  Flip over and repeat until all slits have been glued into place. This completes one section of the star.
