Once you have made a loop, you can go ahead and feed the top end to the back, which you will then feed through the hole.

Continue pulling the end through the loop, eventually you’ll want to pull the bottom end to completely tie the knot.

You will need to tuck the end of the strip inside the star. If you want to inflate the star, you need to clip it to the corner of the pentagon.

You will do this between your thumb and index finger. You’ll want to rotate each point of the star to help it inflate.
