Origami Octahedron Box / Decoration Instructions - Paper Kawaii - #origami #box #octahedron #crafts #diy #star

These are the instructions to learn how to make a pretty origami octahedron with one sheet of paper.

These cute little origami gems would make awesome Christmas tree decorations, you could even use them as gift boxes, create a hanging advent calendar with them! I have a string of them hanging from my lamp stand, they look pretty with the light shining off them as they rotate in the breeze..

These origami instructions use half of a sheet of A4 or letter paper to create a 3D origami octahedron.

A regular octahedron is a Platonic solid composed of eight equilateral triangles, four of which meet in the middle.

I posted a photo tutorial of this origami model at about.com here.

Level: ◆ ◆ ◆ ◇ ◇

You will need:

Half of a sheet of A4 / Letter paper (any rectangular paper)

The actual dimensions used: 29.7 x 10.5 cm

Finished size: About 10 x 6 cm ish.

You could use square paper cut in half, but you’d probably need to cut off some of the sections to close the box.
