In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program
Poland is another country where Unitarian churches have
partner congregations. This paper craft is called gwiazdy, which means "stars." These Polish stars resemble paper snowflakes, but with eight sides instead of five.
1. Fold a square of paper in half to make a rectangle, then in half again to make a square. Now fold in half one last time, corner to corner to make a triangle.
2. Draw a curved line from the middle point of the triangle over to the longest flat side, and cut off the top of the triangle, so that when the paper is eventually opened it will form a circle.
3. Leaving the triangle folded, draw a pattern that is the same on both sides. This pattern will indicate where to cut, so none of the lines should go all the way across the triangle, which would chop the star into pieces.
4. Cut along the lines of the pattern, then unfold to reveal the cut paper star.
