  3. Get one strip and carefully tie the tip into a knot. Do not distort or crumple the shape of the paper.
  4. Gently pull the tip to slightly tighten, but do not press the knot. Make sure not to leave a space in between the 5 corners of the knot.
  5. Cut the small excess of the tip.
  6. Start wrapping around the rest of the strip onto the knot. Let the paper lead you to its most comfortable direction.

  8. Insert the last roll into the nearest pocket and cut excess paper. It should form a pentagon.

  10. It will pop out nicely into a 3D star.
  11. Make as many as you can to fill the jar.
