Birth of a Star

  • 1621 9035 1364703474
    Front Side View of Starting Decagon. Each side is 16 Dots long. I ran out of enough Dots to make it 17 Dots long, which an odd number of Dots are required to make the Star. I'll cut out 2 sections first, which will give me enough Dots to complete the 17 long needed. I suppose I could have simply went with a 15 Dot long one, but where is the fun in that. Bigger Means Better...lol

    First cut out to make the Star

    This is the second cut displaying the card inserted to make the cut. Since this 16 Dots long I started cutout at 8 Dots from corner.

    This view after adding one more layer to bring it up to what would have been a 17 Dot long decagon. For the remaining cutouts I'll now start the cutouts at 9 Dots from the corner. Basically cutting out 8 of them still.

    Here show the first of the two final cutouts to give us that 30 sided Star.

    Front(or back) side of the 30 Sided Star. Hope you can follow these images enough to create your own. You need to create a Decagon first (sorry not shown here). Enjoy and Have Fun...xD !!! :)

    If you're really ambitious, you could take away 5 of the sides by cutting straight through the center of the Star. I guess you could now call it a 25 Sided Hollow Star? o.O ..lol. 
    
    I did this as this will now be the base for my next project. Check back again, this next one could prove to be an interesting one.
    
    Have fun...xD :)

    Another view of card inserted into the cutout area.

    Now we have all the side cutouts done, but we only have a 20 sided Star, and I said we were making a 30 sided one. This will require 2 more cutouts.

    Back side in which the final cut will be taken from.

    You can see the overlap of the added layer as is folded down into the 2 previous cutouts. This brings the overall size to where it would have been, had I started out with a complete 17 Dot long Decagon.  I know that's cheating, but when low on Dots you do what you can to get the most out of your creations...xD :)
