How to Make an 8-Pointed Star

I came across an easy pattern to make an 8-pointed star and thought I'd share. You can make them as big or small as you want. They make great pinkeeps, pillows and ornaments.

Take a square piece of paper and fold in half. Fold in half again. Turn diagonally and fold point to point.

Holding the folded end, cut the top diagonally to resemble a diamond shape.

And there you have it.


  1. Will you have some for sale for those of us who can't fold paper? They would be great Memorial Day/Fourth of July ornies.

  2. Haha! Just listed a star pincushion in my Etsy shop. Will try to get some ornies on Ebay soon!

  3. Thanks always for the great tips...

  4. Thank you for sharing the "how to" on the star. What fun!
