How to Make Wishing Stars

These origami wishing stars (also called lucky stars) are easy and fun to make. Start with a long strip of paper that is of the ratio 1:13 or greater. This is to say, if the paper is 1" wide, then it should be at least 13" long. If you use a standard USA 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper, you can slice off a half inch strip along the 11" edge and that works fine. wishing star
