Opps! Let me re-think this!
sounds like I got two sets of instructions mixed up..... if you only knew how
long it had been since HS geometry!
Ok.... I was wrong!!! The compass will make a 6 pointed star. Use compass to
make circle, with the compass on the same setting ( points same distance
apart) Start at any place on the circumference and walk the compass around
the circle. Marking off 6 segments. Connect alternating points to make 6
pointed star.

5- pointed star..... with compass make circle. Draw in radius. Place center
of protractor (90 degrees) at center point of circle.( think cheap plastic
protractor with tiny hole in middle) Mark off 72 degree increments on
circumference. This should give you 5 points. Connect these to make 5 Pointed
star.
