Five Pointed Origami Star
I love that this star is neatly finished and attractive on both front and back. Update: March 2013. It has recently come to my attention that this design should be credited to Tomoko Fuse.

How to make a five pointed star with pentagon shaped origami paper Start with a pentagon shaped piece of paper. Download PDF set of pentagon templates in various sizes. Fold the pentagon in half down the center of any point. Pull one flat side toward the center of the paper, keeping the center fold line aligned. When the side points intersect the fold lines as shown, stop and hold in place. Crease across the bottom, just between the fold lines. Repeat for each of the five sides. Fold each point in half, working toward the inner (small) pentagon. Flip the paper over and pinch the corners of the (small) pentagon to make sure they are well creased.
