Icosahedron Kit

The Icosahedral Kit is yet another of the Polyhedron kits from Miyuki Kawamura’s book ‘Polyhedron Origami’. In this modular origami, 2 kinds of modules are used – the Edge module and the Vertex module. The icosahedron kit is made from a total of 12 vertex modules and 30 edge modules – a grand total of 42 modules. Double-sided paper works best, since the back of the vertices are visible through all those gaps. The modules [Continued..]

Bascetta Star - A Variation

This Christmas has been a very busy time for me. I had participated in a couple of Christmas sales and have been busy making paper jewelry! And paper jewelry is time-consuming work!

The star requires a total of 24 modules. The [Continued..]

Star Dodecahedron

The Origami Star Dodecahedron is one of the many models that can be folded using the SIP (Six Intersection Pentagrams) Unit. The SIP model was co-discovered independently by Francesco Mancini, Jared Needle and Leong Cheng Chit. The same unit can be used to fold the Star Icosidodecahedron (60 units), the Star Dodecahedron (30 units) and the Star Prism (15 units). And since I tend to fold a lot of 30-unit models, I tried out the star dodecahedron The [Continued..]

Strawberry Wreath

The strawberry wreath is a simple variation of the origami traditional 16-pointed star. While the original star is single-coloured, this variation is double coloured and looks good with double-sided paper. The moment my daughter saw the strawberry colours I had used for this star, she decided that it should be named the Strawberry Wreath I have been meaning to make a tutorial on one of the traditional origami designs and have now revised the plan [Continued..]

Modular from Unit Origami Fantasy

Tomoko Fuse’s book ‘Unit Origami Fantasy’ is in Japanese, so I am not able to find the name of this model! Hence the generic title for the post As far as the model goes, this is a simple model, made from a windmill base. I used printer paper (80 gsm) for the units, which turned out pretty good for this model. I think if I had used regular 60 gsm origami paper, the model might not [Continued..]
