I made this over winter break, following a pattern from Miyuki Kawamura's "Polyhedron Origami for Beginners" (although I inverted it to give it texture; normally each face would be smooth, but I liked how the 'internal' folds looked).

It's a stellated dodecahedron (aka dodecahedral star) made from 30 7.2x7.2cm units of construction paper.  There is a little bit of tape holding the modules together.  As you can kind of see from the picture, it has three colors, none of which touches itself along a side.

It was my first try folding origami from construction paper -- the heavier weight makes creases softer -- but I think it turned out okay.  Since I took pictures during construction, I may make a tutorial if there's interest. 

Comments, questions, and criticism welcomed and appreciated.

I really like the scrappy look of this!
I don't know that I would ever undertake something like this. You must have a good dose of patience to see it through.
Nicely done!

I don't remember how long it took.  Once I hit my stride, I could fold each module in about a minute but assembly was tricky.  I also had to manually cut each square out of the 8.5"x11" cardstock, which took a bunch of time.  I worked on and off on it for a couple of days.

Love it, your right about the internal folds, having them on the outside gives the model a nice look.
