I was very lucky last year to buy this wrapping foil paper during the holiday sale. There was only one roll of it and I never saw this paper again since then. It folds like a dream and even though the reverse side is not pure white, I’m very happy with this paper anyway. So with the holiday season coming up, I hope I find something interesting this year too!

  1. Veri Lovely!!!!

  2. This is a really beautiful design! And I must say, the finished product looks like it was flawlessly crafted. I would love to see diagrams to fold this sometime :D

  3. This is a very beautiful design, I love it. It reminds me of one of the modular stars by Carmen Sprung; an octagram with a hole in the middle. I hope I don’t sound so demanding, but I would be wonderful if you would share the instructions for this model. :)

    • Thank you!
      These stars are similar in appearance to many 8-pointed origami stars/rings, but if they have already been published by someone else – I’m unaware of it.
      I know about three Carmen’s stars which are similar-looking: Asterix, Obelix and Saya Stars. I never saw any diagrams for them online but I figured out how the first two are made (after I designed these stars And I still don’t have a slightest idea on how the Saya Star is folded – which is a good thing actually, because it means that my stars are not the same as Carmen’s :) If you know of any other her stars which are similar – please let me know.

  4. Soo 2 years later still no diagram…
