This has a simple elegance that is truly lovely -- and the little blue bird is the perfect touch of color.

Really nicely done.

I am very jealous. I tried to make a metal star lamp like this and it was a HUGE fail.
Did you have a lot of math involved in making it?

There's math, but I didn't have to do it. One place to get the net for that and lots of other shapes is http://www.korthalsaltes.com/  That's the site that got me hooked on making stars in the first place.

There's also a very cool program called Great Stella http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php that can make printable nets for any shape you can think up, and also give useful information about mitre angles and stuff for working with wood, for instance.

I'd really like to try doing these with other materials like metal or wood but I haven't quite figured out how yet. Maybe somehow make a mold of something sturdy using the folded paper point, to act as like a mandrel for folding sheet metal or a base to prop triangles up on so they can be soddered together at the correct angles? Using metal would make a star lamp heavier and more impressive and able to safely use real lightbulbs instead of LEDs.

If you figure it out, please let me know!
