Step 1Using the ruler and pen or pencil, make a mark in the middle of one 10" edge of paper (5" from each edge).
Step 2Draw lines from the center mark down to each bottom corner.
Step 3Align drawn line with groove of paper cutterand trim off excess. Repeat for other side.
Step 4Align one straight edge of paper with left side of scoring tool. Score at 4 3/8" and 5 7/8".
For sharp points on the star, move paper a scant 1/16th inch away from left side of scoring tool, as shown.
Score the other two sides as you did for the first.
Step 5Use bone folder to crease score lines – valley fold for the center score lines, and mountain fold for the points of the star.
Step 6Fold in one side, then the next side, and tuck the last side under the first to close. Decorate as desired.From Splitcoast Stampers.com
