Default 5 point star

OK, you guys have me working on the 5 point star.
Layout is no problem. The trouble starts when I try to form it.
How do you keep the center from distorting?
What type of brake do I need?
What gauge of metal is best?
I'd like to make some and my daughter would like to decorate them.
I have made several of them out of 30 gauge galvanized; but they don't turn out right and they won't sit flat.
