Trim the piece of paper or card until it is a square, with sides equal to the width of the page. Color one side blue and stick white star stickers on it. Color the other side in alternating red and white stripes. Fold the square in half diagonally, each way, so that you have two diagonal folds which cross in the centre of the page. 1,5 inches from the centre, as shown by the dotted lines in the diagram.
The page should now look like 4 triangles joined at the centre. Take one corner of each triangle and fold it over until the point is on the centre of the square. Each corner should overlap the one underneath slightly. Now prick the pin through all four points and through the centre of the page and stick it into the blunt end of a pencil.

Hamburgers are one of the few ‘American’ foods that actually originated in the USA and are not adapted from somewhere else. Apple pie is another well-known American favourite.
