Origami “Star Within” Tutorial – Ali Bahmani

Star Within
Origami Star Within Paper Kawaii 02

This is how to make an origami “Star Within” designed by Ali Bahmani. A beautiful origami star made from one sheet of pentagonal paper, it’s lovely to hang up as a seasonal decoration, or display in a window with the light shining through.

This lovely origami star is designed by Ali Bahmani, whom I had the fortune to be allowed to show this second star. The first was the origami “Sakura Star“. This one is similar only in that it starts from a pentagonal sheet of paper. The method used to finish this origami star is very unique, a kind of inside reverse squash. Enjoy.
