Origami Star Ornament

I found this ornament and fell in love with it.  I used the Candy Cane Designer Series Paper (DSP) and could get 3 ornaments per sheet.  Here's a video of it in action.

First, I started a piece of 12X12 DSP and cut them into 3X3 squares.  I got 16 squares from each sheet. Take 15 of them and score them at 1-1/2" both horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. Save the 16th square for the ends later.
 Fold each square first diagonally, then horizontally, then vertically like the picture below.
 Your square should look like this:
 Squeeze the paper so it looks like this:
 You will need 5 squares for each ornament.
 Place adhesive on on side of the square.
 Lay the second square facing the same way until you get a design like this:
 Here is another view of the ornament.
 Place adhesive on one end and attach a 5-1/2" piece of ribbon and then cover with more adhesive.
 Cut the saved 16th square into four 1-1/2" squares and use 2 to cover up the ends.
 Here is one end completed.
 Repeat on the other end.
 Close up the ornament, fold the ribbon in half to thread a bead on, and then tie the end up in a knot.  This is what it should look like:
Here is the video again of the ornament in action:
Thank you for checking in!
