I folded this origami star with my dear niece Alejandra, who has great artistic talent and inclination to fold paper. We followed diagrams from a book called “Papiroflexia nueva y fácil” written by Emanuele Azzitá (Publishing house: De Vecchi).
It is not clear in the book if the star itself is a creation of this author.
It is made with six modules. They are easy to fold, but somewhat intricate to assemble. It is well worth persevering to put the modules together. The result is a satisfying and volumetric twelve-pointed star.
Jacobo, the family’s new puppy, ate the first star that Alejandra folded. Of course, Alejandra did not feel very happy about that. The positive thing was that Alejandra immediately proceeded to fold another one.
Now she knows by heart the steps to fold the star.
