Chrysanthemum (CFW 142)

Chrysanthemum (CFW 142)

Shuzo Fujimoto’s star with twelve rays, folded from a hexagon. See Maple Leaf (CFW 149) for a counterpart folded from a square and a list of variants made fr...

Maple Leaf (CFW 149)

Maple Leaf (CFW 149)

This star, designed by Shuzo Fujimoto, is based on a square twist and has eight rays. Its hexagonal twist counterpart (with twelve rays) is Chrysanthemum (CF...

Hexagonal Star (CFW 143)

Hexagonal Star (CFW 143)

A characteristic feature of this star are “slits” (of course, folded rather than cut) which separate rays from one another and make the center of the star ve...

Hex Twist Star (CFW 91)

Hex Twist Star (CFW 91)

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...

Hex Twist Star (CFW 103)

Hex Twist Star (CFW 103)

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...

Chrysanthemum Medal (CFW 176)

Chrysanthemum Medal (CFW 176)

This star based on a hex twist and designed by Shuzo Fujimoto has double the normal number of rays. It can be fitted with an additional “ribbon” (made from a...

Seal of a Secret Society

Seal of a Secret Society

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...

Hex Twist Star (CFW 122)

Hex Twist Star (CFW 122)

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...

Hex Twist Star (CFW 104)

Hex Twist Star (CFW 104)

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...

Triangle Twist Star (CFW 147)

Triangle Twist Star (CFW 147)

A very simple star designed by Shuzo Fujimoto. Folded from an equilateral triangle, but the star itself has hexagonal symmetry. This models seems to have al...

Windmill from Square (CFW 81)

Windmill from Square (CFW 81)

One of the simplest among Fujimoto’s stars. This design is folded from a square, but only a hexagonal part of it is used. CFW 84 is the version folded direct...

Hex Twist Star (CFW 105)

Hex Twist Star (CFW 105)

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...

Hex Twist Star (CFW 90)

Hex Twist Star (CFW 90)

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....

Scissors (CFW 87)

Scissors (CFW 87)

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...

Square Twist Star (CFW 150)

Square Twist Star (CFW 150)

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...

Dahlia (CFW 144)

Dahlia (CFW 144)

One of Shuzo Fujimoto’s many stars. Folded from a hexagon, but the number of rays is twelve. There is a design from a square (CFW 150) that uses a similar te...

Daffodil (CFW 100)

Daffodil (CFW 100)

One of Shuzo Fujimoto’s stars, based on a hex twist whose central hexagon has a side length equal to ⅓ of the hexagonal sheet’s edge. This model appears und...

Daffodil Variant (CFW 101)

Daffodil Variant (CFW 101)

One of Shuzo Fujimoto’s stars, based on a hex twist whose central hexagon has a side length equal to ⅓ of the hexagonal sheet’s edge. Folded from uncoated Kr...

Lucky Star Fractals (10 different colors)

Lucky Star Fractals (10 different colors)

Ten level-3 Lucky Star Fractals, folded from metallic paper in different colors. This is just a small subset of how many times I have folded this model over ...

Box with Color-Change Star (Hexagonal)

Box with Color-Change Star (Hexagonal)

The technique used for this hexagonal box can be used for other polygons as well, resulting in boxes with a different number of sides. However, the minimum n...

Lucky Star Fractal (Open Back)

Lucky Star Fractal (Open Back)

This model is a variant of the Lucky Star Fractal (aka Logarithmic Star), designed by myself and independently by many others before me, starting with Shuzo ...

Lucky Star Fractal (level 3)

Lucky Star Fractal (level 3)

A level-3 fold of Lucky Star Fractal, this time from gray metallic paper. I rarely fold a model multiple times, but this particular model is so nice I have f...

Lucky Star Fractal

Lucky Star Fractal

This is a recursive version of the Lucky Star molecule. Just like the non-recursive version, it can be tessellated or used for decorating a box. The back of ...

Twirl Bowl

Twirl Bowl

This hexagonal dish is created as an intermediate step while collapsing my Sunk Star Box.

Sunk Star Boxes (two enantiomers)

Sunk Star Boxes (two enantiomers)

Two folds of my Sunk Star Box with different twisting directions, side by side. Wherever there’s a twist in origami, we get two possible versions of the fold...

Sunk Star Box (Hexagonal)

Sunk Star Box (Hexagonal)

The star in the center of this box is a kind of twist which does not lie flat and therefore can form a box but not a tessellation. This model is a part of a ...

Sunk Star Box (Square)

Sunk Star Box (Square)

The star in the center of this box is a kind of twist which does not lie flat and therefore can form a box but not a tessellation. This model started a serie...

Kropka Star

Kropka Star

Kropka Star, designed by Natalia Guzowska. I had the pleasure of test folding this model from soon-to-be-published diagrams. Paper with hexagonal symmetry pa...

Heptagonal Star Box (Chevron Corrugation)

Heptagonal Star Box (Chevron Corrugation)

This seven-sided star shape can be used as one half of a two-piece box or alone as an ornament. This heptagonal star design is based around my Chevron Corrug...

Octagonal Star

Octagonal Star

Own design, inspired by Meenakshi Mukerji’s Wondrous one sheet origami. Folded from a square, but you can trim it down to an octagon if you accept cutting th...
