nine-pointed stars and snowflakes

There are several ways to make nine-pointed stars out of paper. You can paste together three paper triangles, or create a triangle template and use it, rotated three times, to trace out a nine-pointed figure onto another sheet of paper. Our favourite method, though, is one that we learned from friends in Vietnam, which relies only on folding, similar to origami. This video describes the folding process step-by-step. The nice thing about this method is that you can easily take things a step further to make beautiful nine-pointed snowflakes.

  1. Can you send me something I can print out with instructions for the 9 pointed star simple origami, and the snowflake? I can think of many uses for this knowledge and skill! I am a craft impaired person, so I have to have the directions right beside me and practice, even if I saw it on a video.

    Thanks so much for your help!
