When George Washington commissioned Betsy Ross to create the first American flag in the spring of 1776, his design featured a six-pointed star. He thought cutting equal sides in a six-pointed star would be easier than a five pointed star.

Here's a tutorial to cut your own 5-pointed star, just like Betsy!
