Origami Twinkle Star Tutorial - Puffy Stars

Make a super cute inflatable origami twinkle star! This puffy origami star makes a beautiful decoration all year round! Made from one sheet of paper, no glue required.

This origami blow-up star looks like a giant origami lucky star! ⭐️ It’s not a box, but it can be hung up as a decoration or just displayed as it is or make a lot and have them strung up in a garland. The nice thing about this origami puffy star is that it’s solid, because of the twisting that closes the star at the front.

It’s called a Twinkle Star because of a suggestion on instagram, I’m useless at thinking of names for models! 😅I am obsessed with stars and have been for years, star necklaces, earrings, patterns, I love the shape.. It’s probably because I was watching Care Bears as a child!

Folding this and inflating it is actually pretty satisfying. We will be making a decagon (10 sided) sheet first of all, but don’t worry, it’s easy, especially if you already know how to make a pentagon.

I recommend using a paper scoring tool with a ruler for some of the creasing but it’s not required if you don’t want to. If you’d like to, but don’t have a scoring tool, just use something pointy but not too sharp such as the edge of a paper clip, used up pen, white pencil, ect.

▸ 1 sheet of square paper

The yellow and blue paper is from Toyo’s pastel origami pack, available to buy online here. The pink paper is from this pack.
