Looks like an icosahedron?

Made from this Trimodule?

Anybody want to try the instructions above with me to see if it works?

These would make great X-mas ornaments!

I am going to try this.  I bought some stacked note pads with loose squares no sticky @ Big Lots exactly for Origami.  Thanks for the links!

Thanks for all your comments Cheesy

I'm sorry, but my instructions were in German:

You are right about both.[edit-- I'm not so sure about the trimodule anymore, looked the same at first glance, but seems to be a bit different] But what the German instruction explain only poorly, and the English not at all is how to assemble them. I'll try to take some pictures soon.

Those are great! I allways wanted to know how they are made. Thanks for posting the link!

The stars from the other link are pretty amazing, too.

Tutorial  Grin

I could not follow the English instructions from link posted by kmwann above. Plus I am not sure anymore they bring exactly the same result:

So here are a few pics on how to make these stars:

You'll need 30 pages of square paper (Mine were 9x9cm). Do for each one of these step 1 to 6


Flip over after the first two steps.


Flip over befor each new step


Fold at the mark in step 6



Now you unfold until they look as shown above.
You'll need 3 pieces of paper for the first spike


You stick one part into another so that the blue and pink lines meet.


One finished spike. Five spikes form a closed circle.

--- edit---
how to connect the spikes:

Each piece of paper is actually part of two spikes. All the folds are symmetrically - so each part that is sticking out of your first spike, is the one part of a new spike and so on. That is why you need only 30 pieces of paper even though you get 20 spikes.

It's best if you make one whole spike and then make spikes coming off of that... it's easiest if you keep in mind that each group of spikes makes a star, or a group of 5.

---/edit ---

I hope you find this tutorial understandable. If not, please ask me.

a positive attitude may not improve the situation, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
