The process of folding this pentagonal origami star, created by David Martinez, is so pleasing you’ll want to make it over and over.
I have featured this fantastic called “Sakura Star” in a previous entry, but have just recently produced video instructions showing how to fold it.
- The video starts by showing how to make a pentagon from a square. If you already know how to make a pentagon, then skip ahead to minute 3:11.
- You can also see how to add a hint of contrasting color inside the star by inserting a central piece of paper.
- To conclude, there are instructions on how to make a puffier origami star by joining two units.
Enjoy folding this five pointed origami star. And please do let me know how it goes for you!
