## Star a la Fujimoto III (orange art nouveau paper)

Star a la Fujimoto III is a great way to showcase patterned papers, in this case an art nouveau themed gift wrapping paper.

This album contains tessellations whose edges are decorated, e.g. with petal patterns.

Star a la Fujimoto III is a great way to showcase patterned papers, in this case an art nouveau themed gift wrapping paper.

Star a la Fujimoto III looks particularly interesting when folded from paper whose pattern has hexagonal symmetry.

In this variant, the rays are layered “one on top of the other” rather than “every other one in a different layer”. This changes the appearance of the front ...

This tessellation is based on a hex grid but the symmetry of molecules is triangular. This is also the reason the whole model is not a fully symmetric hexago...

This year’s model of the Star of Bethlehem for Epiphany is based on my Star of David I molecule. The model as a whole is very similar to Epiphany III, the di...

This model belongs to a series inspired by the work of Shuzo Fujimoto. The outer edge is made with a general technique I devised that can be combined with di...

This is a recursive version of Shuzo Fujimoto’s Scissors (CFW 87). I wanted to call it Biohazard Fractal since it resembles the biohazard symbol, but later d...

This is another fold of Scissors Fractal, a recursive model I derived from Shuzo Fujimoto’s Scissors (CFW 87). In this fold, the direction each level rotates...

A comparison of two variants of Scissors Fractal: one with consistent rotation direction for all levels and one with alternating rotation directions.

I folded this Seal of a Secret Society from Clairefointaine Maya paper for the sake of creating a phototutorial on this model.

This star by Shuzo Fujimoto has a decoration made from six radially aligned petal folds in the center. After minor modification, it can be tessellated (I’m n...

This star by Fujimoto is basically the same thing as CFW 87 but folded from a 6×6×6 grid, which results in more paper around the central molecule and a diffe...

While my first fold of this variant was from a 16×16 grid, this one is from 32×32, which produces many more molecules and better shows how squares of two siz...

I came up with this design due to folding lots of stars by Shuzo Fujimoto recently. Since this is not the first time new ideas pop up based on his works (thi...

A star by Shuzo Fujimoto. The front looks as if woven from mutually intersecting triangles while the back is rather plain. A very similar model, CFW 120 loo...

This star by Fujimoto is broadly speaking a level-2 Lucky Star Fractal folded from a slightly smaller hexagon so that there is less paper available on the ba...

This star would have been simple to fold were it not for the final folds that create the small hexagon in the center. These folds on each side should be perf...

This star is as simple as it gets — literally just a single rearranged hex twist made on a hexagon of the right size relative to the twist’s central hexagon.

This star is folded from a hexagon but has triaxial symmetry which reminds me of the biohazard symbol. Compare with CFW 103. In a rare coincidence, this sta...

A star from square twist that uses a similar technique as the Dahlia for shaping the petals. It can be seen as a single molecule of Propellers Tessellation w...

This tessellation differs from most other designs by having lower rotational symmetry: only 180° rather than the 60° typical for tessellations based on a hex...

A very simple variant of Fujimoto’s Hydrangea, which does not seem to be popular among folders so far.

Decorating Easter Eggs is a popular Easter tradition in Poland, Ukraine, and other Slavic countries. This one is folded from a single sheet of paper rather t...

In the description of my recent Hydrangea Tessellation fold, I mentioned that I had recently experimented with different variants of the “leaves” which form ...

Believe it or not, over all these years of folding tessellations, I never folded a clean tiling of Fujimoto’s Hydrangea. I recently decided to make up for th...

Another fold of Shuzo Fujimoto’s Hydrangea. I’ve kept two outermost leaf layers free of unnecessary creases. For deeper layers, it becomes much harder.

This model, which includes tessellation elements, has a 3×3 field of squares which reminds me of a tic-tac-toe game board. The pattern is based on Square Pix...

This design is my modification of Shuzo Fujimoto’s Hydrangea. Despite the change being very minor, it allows the model to be shaped in a more three-dimension...
