Learn how to make a fun magic origami spring toy. This accordion type origami gadget is addictive to play with, impress your friends!

This origami accordion can also become a rotating star shape that can be rotated forever.. similar to the origami fireworks model – you’d need to use about 4 sheets of paper.

No glue is required unless you want to attach them together, they do attach without glue, maybe with thick textured paper, you might not need glue.

Making a long spring is nice to look at but the single origami spring is the easiest to twist.

I haven’t tried using it as a slinky… maybe it would work?
