How to Make an Origami Star Flower and Variations post image

Are you a fan of five? At Origami Spirit we have featured some lovely models made from a pentagon, and now we’d like to present the Star Flower, a new pentagonal origami model.

Did you know that the largest largest number of flower families is five-petaled?

The number five may be found all around: five senses, five elements, a musical quintet, the five interlocked rings of the Olympic Games symbol, five petals in the flowers of most edible fruits, five arms in a starfish.

The number five is a worldwide symbol of humanity, righteous authority, harmony, beauty and excellence. Artists from many countries have applied five-fold symmetry to create harmony in their composition, such as Raphael, and Salvatore Dali.

And, not least, we have five fingers on each hand to fold paper!

So let’s try flexing those fingers and make this origami pentagonal flower. This Star Flower is one of my own design, and I’m offering it as a premium step-by-step video*.

Tips and suggestions for making the pentagonal Star Flower

    • Regular office paper normally used to type letters or make copies is perfect for making this origami flower. If you find this paper in different colors, even better! Tant paper is also suitable.
    • In addition to making the flower, the video shows how to fold a pentagon. You can skip to minute 2:41 if you already know how to make a pentagon.
    • The first time you make this origami flower, begin your pentagon from  a paper sized 8 x 8 inches (20 x 20 cm) and fold a few of this size to begin with.
    • When you become proficient at folding this flower from the larger sized paper, try folding it with smaller pieces of paper.
