Are these the lucky stars you are trying to make?

Origami Folder,

Those are the ones I'm wondering about.
Is there a special trick to get that nice puffy appearance?

Thx!

'tis all in the fingernails/other thin object.  instead of pinching, gently hold the star in one hand, facing up.  then put a crease in each side with your fingernail, rotating the star as you go.

hold it gently with your thumb and index finger on two of the edges and use your thumbnail of your other hand to make the indent along the edge.

 Whatever you do, don't touch the middle part as you push in with your thumbnail and it puffs out. Try to apply even pressure.

Sounds like you already got some good advice about the stars.  If you're new to origami try this site.  It's the best on the web.  Once you've mastered the English instructions, click on the Japanese flag and you get many more projects.  Since the site has diagrams and FULL ANIMATION, you should be able to fold them with ease.  This fellow posts new projects every month. I e-mailed him to thank him and he replied.

Hello. This could just be me but, I find that when I make stars they tend to be more puffy if I use a stiffer paper. Hope this helps. Good luck.
