Origami Cube Star Decoration Tutorial

Learn how to make a pretty modular origami cube star – a great origami decoration all year round. This straight forward origami star uses 6 sheets of square paper.

I ended up calling this an ‘origami cube star’ – as I’m not sure what the actual name is of the shape, and there is a cube in the middle of it.

These modular origami star decorations are quite easy to make, I would say they look best using one colour or pattern for each unit. It’s quite simple to attach the modules together, it doesn’t need glue (but you can if you want).

If you saw the Origami Christmas Tree I previously posted, this is where the units came from. 

You can also make two of these and make a simple double ended decoration – much like the traditional origami spinning top (but with only 2 sheets).

I tried it today. I enjoyed making the modules, but I found it difficult to assemble the cube without using glue. Probably because I am not as accurate with my folding as you are and maybe also because I chose some paper with a very smooth surface. I will try it some other time with another type of paper.
I am relatively new to origami. I got started because I needed bags and boxes for my garden seeds.
Now I am addicted, partly because of you. 🙂
I enjoy your postings very much and spent a fortune on paper today.
