it's kinda hard to photograph these since they have so many sides!
the one on the far right is rainbow, every strip of paper is a different color
each one is woven with 12 modular units

thanks for looking Wink

I have to start off by saying that I admit that I have absolutely no need for a woven stellated octahedron at least that I know of, but after seeing these - they are so cool!  I might have to figure out a use for one  Cheesy

Those are very creative and fun!

Wow, those are intense! They remind me of the origami stars I see in Chinese resturants on occasion (at least they speak Chinese...) and jars are filled up with them. That'd be a great project! But I bet the octahedrons time consuming, huh? But they're so lovely.

I think I'm going to have to make hundreds of origami stars now....
