Origami Modular Star Instructions

Origami Modular Star

You can make this origami modular star with as many or as few modules as you like... the model pictured and diagrammed is made with 6 modules: so you will need 6 squares of paper to make this model.

But you can add more modules than 6, or have less if you like... the more you add, the more 3-D the star becomes.

1. Start with your paper coloured side up. Fold in half, then in half again, as shown. Crease well, then open out again.

3. Holding the points shown, bring them both down to the centre point on the bottom line. Flatten model.

4. Fold bottom corners of top layer only to top point and unfold.
Repeat on back. This is one module.
