Modular Origami, Kusudama & Stars by Maria Sinayskaya

Modular Origami Polyhedra

Origami Polyhedra by Tomoko Fuse

When I just started doing modular origami, I was mostly attracted to floral designs, all sort of curls, petals and frills. And I still love all that, but somewhere along the way I developed an interest in more straight geometrical models too – polyhedrons of all kinds and shapes.

And when I think of origami polyhedrons, two books in particular come to mind – Unit Origami Essence and Unit Origami Wonderland by Tomoko Fuse. I have already folded plenty of models from the first book, but only now I started to study the second one. These are models I found there and I’m surely going to fold something else from this book soon!

  1. These are really beautiful, Maria. Congratulations. Is the Icosahedron from page 42 of the book?

    • Thank you! It’s from page 90, I’ll add this information to the post.

  2. I really want to create this, but I don’t have the book. Is there any other online tutorial?

    Thanks!
