You can fold and cut out a five-pointed star with one straight cut. Cut off one inch from the bottom of a piece of paper. Fold it in half. Fold it in half again to mark the middle of the left-hand side. Fold the top right corner to the mark you just made. Fold the flap down. Fold it again. Make one straight cut to make a star. To make the star prettier, reverse some of the folds. Make all the short folds valley folds … …and all the long folds mountain folds.
