2. Using a scalpel lightly score the lines on the rectangle shapes, follow the lines that are dotted. Tip - you only need to lightly brush across enough to mark the paper but not cut it.

5. Carefully glue the horizontal tabs onto the blank star shape, lining up the best you can with the edges of the star. Any extra can be cut off to neaten up the base.

6. Cut out the stars and moons from the other star shape. Tip - Move the star shape around rather than trying to cut at awkward angles, to get a smooth curve on the moons cut a little bit, move the star and cut a little more at a time.
