Learn to fold a pretty Origami Sakura Star designed by Ali Bahmani. This origami flower is made starting with 1 sheet of square paper made into a pentagon.  Pretty on it’s own or attach to greetings cards and other DIY projects.

This origami flower or star is very unique as it can be predominantly a star or a flower depending on which angle you display it at. So in addition to this being very pretty, it’s also a very satisfying model to complete.

While this is an intermediate to advanced level, if you have some patience you will be able to fold it.

I decided not to speed up most of the repetitive steps of this origami star flower, you can choose to speed up or slow down the video by clicking the ⚙ gear icon and selecting the speed you like best. It’s probably a good idea to pause the video after each step and play again once you have completed it.

Wow! I started with scratch paper for practice. It was a bit frustrating at times but I got it done! Very impressed, especially how easy the end was to put together! I used the tip of a mechanical pencil to tuck the edges in.

The part when she folds it into the ninja star shape is kinda tricky, and a little frustrating. Can you make another video that shows the step by step version? Another suggestion is to type down or use an audio recording of the procedure, I believe that origami should be relaxing and not frustrating so please make an easier to understand foundation.
Thank you!

Amazing. I’ll use 5*5 cm paper to make assorted jewelry for my sister’s wedding! 🙂 too bad the paper is too thick to complete the beautiful pattern at the center. With some training maybe… Thanks for the video anyway, I’ve been browsing this website a lot the last few days, it is really amazing.
