Two modular origami ‘hexagram’ stars, these pretty origami stars have dual look to them, each made from 6 pieces of paper & simple to make. One is the hollow star and the other is a solid star.
I thought 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.
