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


This origami starfish starts from a regular pentagon paper. One special folding technique involved with this model is inside reverse-fold.


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 starfish.


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). Here I am using a paper with a dimension of 15cm x 15cm.

There is an instruction to teach how to make a regular pentagon out of a square paper.


You can easily get a regular pentagon from the instruction.


This is the front side of the regular pentagon.
