||Star Sonobe, Sonobe Variation
||Modular origami ball, kusudama
||The model is based on the classic sonobe unit by Mitsunobu Sonobe. The variation is inspired by many other variations of the unit created by Tomoko Fuse, Kunihiko Kasahara and Meenakshi Mukerji.
It’s that time of the year again! Time to fold origami stars and Christmas decorations.
For this project you will need 30 square sheets of paper, preferably double-sided. For the model pictured above I used 6 cm squares of red-yellow colored origami paper by Toyo (Japan). It worked out nicely, but I actually recommend using larger sheets, at least 7.5 cm (3 inch) in length.
Follow the video tutorial created by Sara Adams of HappyFolding.com where she demonstrates how to fold the unit and assemble all 30 of them into a modular ball:
