wonderful tutorial. Although it's not written in English, I was able to muddle my way through it! There is no sewing involved and they go together pretty quickly once you have done the cutting and pressing. I came up with a few little tricks along the way, so I thought I'd do my own tutorial.
Next, snug them up by sliding them towards the center, as shown above.
Now you'll take each top strip and fold it back over the center square, one at a time. Start with the right one, as shown. Next fold down the top strip, then the left strip, then for the last strip...
...you'll tuck it under the first strip (right) and pull it snugly to lock it all together.
Now we have the main part done and we'll start on the points! Fold the top right strip as shown: at a 45 degree angle to the right, and then down.
Next, you'll fold that strip back onto itself so create a point. I used a small binder clip to hold it snugly while I did the next step.

I searched the internet to see what exactly these stars are called. It seems that they are sort of a 2-D or flat version of the Froebel Star or Morvarian Star. I also found this video for a Folded Paper German Star you may find helpful. Watch the Part 1 video, which shows basically what I've done to make the fabric stars you see here. If any of my photos/instructions are confusing, watch that video and it'll all make sense!
I've had such a great time making these! I think they'll make great teacher/neighbor/hostess gifts!
