Stellated Octahedron Origami
I've been having fun with a new origami kit, Geo-Gami, The Art of Making Geometrical Shapes from Paper, by Katherine Gleason. I'm planning to teach the first two projects, the hexahedron and the stellated octahedron which builds on the hexahedron to the Origami Club I sponsor at school. I'm posting a video of my making these for my club on our school website and will post it here as well. The video is in three segments to make it easier for uploading here. The pictures above are of the same object, just from different angles. I used twenty-four squares of origami paper for the total project, three for each component.
