Learn how to make an Origami Stellated Octahedron with these simple instructions. This model is fun to make because you ‘blow’ it up at the end. 🙂

This origami star is inflatable similar to the traditional origami water bomb model.

I love this origami ornament, a lot of modular models that look similar to this one, take ages to make, this one is finished in a few minutes. It would look awesome as a Christmas star, or tree decoration!
If you made a lot of them, they’d look great strung up as a garland, or hang them individually.

The paper I’d recommend using is basic origami kami paper, but will work nicely with thicker textured paper too.
