Tuck the smaller end into the slot created by the knot.
Turn over the knot, and wrap the longer end around it, until there is only a little piece left.
Tuck the remaining piece of paper into the nearest slot so as to create a 5 sided figure.

Be careful to not apply pressure on the middle portion of the shape. Hold it on two edges and pinch to form the corners of the star.
This is the completed star, with all five sides pinched.
The stars can be used for a variety of decorations. Enjoy making your lucky stars!
