You will also need:

*Scissors

*A glue stick

Step 1

Take 8 paper bags and using the glue stick, glue a line across the bottom of the first one then up the middle like an upside down T shape. Place the next bag on top, repeat this with all the bags, leaving the last one without glue.

Step 2

Cut a triangular point on the top of the bags, the point should be at the centre, but dont worry if the angle aren't perfectly even.

Step 3

Glue the front of the pile of bags in the upside down T shape again and then carefully unfold the star and join the two ends together,
