This star was designed Paolo Bascetta, who is famous for his modular Stars. The design is also called roulette or spinning star. You need nine sheets of paper to fold it. One of the simple module takes less than a minute to make. This makes the origami star a great project for beginners.
- Origami-paper of different colours make it a great door wreath.
- also can be used as a throwing ninja star (“shuriken”)

I like this model because it is really stable without glue. Usually I find modulars annoying and repetitive. But those nine modules are quickly folded with little afford.
The diagrams took about two ours to make. There is also a Video of that.
