To all members who honor me by finding value in my work through paid membership, I thank you so very much for helping me regain my creative insanity by allowing me to purge advertising.


I constantly revisit these images to update and refresh or replace the old and funky.

"Betsy Ross" puzzle game

This puzzle project demonstrates how to fold and cut a perfect five-pointed star out of a circle shape.

Print the circle on regular or light-weight paper. Cut out the circle, then fold the in half along the dotted line. Fold the half-circle into five equal parts along the dotted lines.

To cut out the star, start from the upper left point of the folded wedge and cut diagonally toward the middle or lower part of the opposite side.

This Betsy Ross puzzle is based upon a historic puzzle published in Project Gutenberg's Amusements in Mathematics.
