    First, draw a pentagon that will be used as a template (to see animated method of construction go here or here) and cut it out. Use thick paper in case you want to make more boxes.

    Now, using your template, draw two pentagons that share the same side. Remember to leave some margin around the pentagon for wings (they are essential for sticking both parts together). You can already draw a star inside, by connecting alternate vertices of a pentagon.

    For the best effect, draw lines from middle points of pentagon sides to points where star sides intersect. They will be used in forming the sides of the box.


    Glue two parts together (leave one side for an opening). Remember to score every line with an empty pen (except for the ones that are inside the stars)


    At the end, form the sides of the box using previously scored lines.


    Your 3D Paper Star Box is ready to be filled with sweets or other tiny items!
