Take a full-sized double sheet of newspaper. The measurements given are for an open sheet sized 28" x 22". If you use a paper of a different size, adjust the measurements accordingly. Fold vertically to display one page. Measure 7 3/8" from the vertical fold and mark point A. Fold point B (the top of the vertical fold) to point A and crease. This should make a angle of 36 degrees at point C. Fold so that crease C-D lies on top of C-A. Then fold back along C-A.
Cut according to the pattern shown at the left. Do not cut the
end of the wings. The pattern produces a ring of five angels, connected
at the wing tips. The triangle at the top becomes the star. After the
pattern is cut out, it can be opened to show one angel. By tearing the
point where two angel wings come together you can spread out the two
torn ends and display a chain of five angels.

God had more people to tell the good news to. A long way to the east there were people looking for the promised king of the Jews. (Unfold star.) God sent them a special message by sending a star that led them right to the place where Jesus was, and they brought their precious gifts and bowed down to worship him. Today almost everbody knows the story of that first Christmas, But many people don't know that Jesus was God Himself, who came to live among us and to pay the penalty for our sins so that we can be saved. Those of us who know this Good News should go and share it with others so they can experience the real joy of Christmas.
