Learn how to fold a beautiful 6 point origami star designed by José Meeusen. This geometric origami star looks very different on each side. Made from one sheet of paper, no glue required. This is an intermediate level origami model.

At this time of year I become star obsessed (more than normal), here is another origami star, this one is a little more challenging!

This pretty origami star can be a challenge to fold, but if you follow along, pause the video when needed after each step really, then you should be able to create this star.

I would recommend using the largest paper you have to start with. Something like 20 x 20 cm is good enough. Thin paper or thicker paper works well.

Use a tool to define the folds if desired. I prefer not to use one unless the paper is thicker.

Design: José Meeusen (find José on instagram, flickr or facebook)
Level: ★★★★☆

You will need:

▸ 1 sheet of square paper (or rectangular, see below)
▸ Scissors to create the hexagon.

Paper size example: 25 x 25 cm
Final model size: 10 x 10 cm

If starting with rectangular paper, you can create a hexagon using this method – (you get a larger hexagon with folds using this method!)

Star above is folded using thicker ‘Kraft’ paper, thicker paper produces a star that is more three-dimensional.

I hope you enjoy making this star as much as I did, if you make one and take a photo, please tag me on instagram (@paperkawaii) or post in in a comment down below! <3
