Two modular origami stars, these pretty origami stars are in the shape of a “hexagram” or 6 point star, each made from 6 pieces of paper & simple to make. One is the hollow star and the other is a solid star. These are pretty simple to make, using any kind of paper, I’ve made them with both thick and thin paper. Using metallic paper also has a great effect (photos under the video).
These modular origami stars will make lovely Christmas tree decorations or at any time of year really. The hexagram shape ✡ appears in many cultures and religions including as “The Star Of David” and it’s also seen in Buddhism, Christianity and Hinduism. I really like the symbol, this origami version is nice as the shape appears twice in both stars, the solid star also has two hexagons.
