  1. Fascinating!

    • Thank you David! This is a really nice star.

  2. It is amazing that in this modular origami, we do not need to alter the angels in the folding process of the module to end up with a star with a set number of points. Instead, the star puffs up to make up for the absence of angles. It locks good, it’s 3d, and the very simple steps for a module makes this one of my favorite modular models.

    • >Instead, the star puffs up to make up for the absence of angles.

      Yes, exactly, good point! 8-unit assembly makes the star completely flat, whereas, if made from 5 units, it’s almost spherical in shape:)

      • It actually works as a great windmill, too. Try placing a toothpick or a sting through the holes in the middle of the star, then try blowing from the points. It makes a nice strobe light effect if you use multicolored papers :D
