2 sheets of square paper, or any paper cut into a perfect square
Fold the paper in half horizontally, first one way then the other.
Fold the paper diagonally in both directions.
Cut halfway up each diagonal fold just made, from the outer edge towards the center (there should be 4 cuts).
Fold each cut side towards the uncut center to make star points. Glue the cut sides down, and repeat all the way around.
Adjust the points of the star and set aside.
Repeat steps 1-5 with the second sheet of paper. You will now have two halves of the star tree topper.
Glue an 8-inch piece of twine or yarn piece around the center of one of the star pieces.
Glue the two sides of the star together, offsetting the points to make an 8-sided star.
