Thanks for this short and crisp video.
As a child I had learnt this but forgotten. Your video helped immensely.
And I really liked the way you explained the fifths!
Thanks for this video, Sara!
I've been in love with a lilly made from a pentagon and have been folding it for several years now, but I work with all kinds of papers/recycled, etc, and it's been so hard to create the pentagon each time. This is so easy and simple. (I found it here: http://anu-origami.blogspot.co.il/2011/02/origami-five-petal-lily.html, but couldn't thank them for linking to you without signing up).
Thanks for your great site!
Hi Sara, I'm writing a little origami book for Scouts. It includes a method for folding a pentagon from a square, but your method is much better! Can you tell me whose method this is please? I would like to include it in my book, so I would like to mention the discoverer/author, and also ask their permission if possible.
i loved this method to get a pentagon out of a square. do you know if this is the largest pentagon possible? just curious...
I didn't knew pentagon was possible.
can you do octagon to?
p.s.- by the way, when will Llopio thingie come out?
Check http://www.happyfolding.com/instructions-octagon for instructions on how to cut an octagon.
As to Llopio's Moment of Truth - it will have to wait until I have a bit more time on my hands, I fear. :(
Can't you also make a decagon the same way, only cutting it at a different angle?
Sure. One way to get a decagon is to fold just like for the pentagon. Then, before cutting, fold the angle in half one more time. Then again cut along the edge of top-most layer again.
i would like to fold a decagon.......Mobins
