A recent design of mine, a box with the Star of David, seen from the top. Folded from a single sheet of Tant paper without cuts or glue. The star can be tessellated.

It was quite challenging to fold this model cleanly (without unnecessary creases visible in the model), so I plan to use it as an example of my clean folding technique during the Origami Outdoor Meeting in Kraków, Poland, this June.

The model is a bit older but, I found today to be a good date for publishing it since it is the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

After designing the tessellation molecule, I found a very similar idea used before by Christine in her Angel Tessellation. However, her molecules do not lie flat which makes the stars less clearly visible. Apparently, my model is also very similar to Eric Gjerde’s tessellation called Negative Space Stars: the stars are formed in essentially the same way but the space between them has fewer pleats in my model.
