This page is for those who want the instruction to fold an origami cube star.


This origami cube star starts from a masked 16x16 matrix origami base.

One thing you need to learn from this model is to directly apply a crease pattern to a paper.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami star.


If you are ready, then let's get started.


If you find any bugs on this instruction, please send an email to HyoAhn's email.


You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami star (*it is easier if the front and the back side of the paper are slightly different whether it be in texture or color).

Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). Here I am using a 15cm x 15cm square paper.

This is the front side of the paper that I am using for this instruction.

cube origami star: back side of paper


This is the back side of the paper.


As you can see, the back side is not shiny compared to the front side.

cube origami star: new front side of paper


This is the crease pattern for this origami cube star.


You don't need to apply this CP directly. It is here for your reference.
