This video describes how to fold a fantastic origami model "Star Infinity" designed by Francesco Guarnieri.
Francesco kindly gave me permission to make this video accessible to you.


Dear Sara:

How can I begin to thank you. This comment is preceding my folding Infinity Star as I was so thrilled about the tutorial. Once again, a perfectly clear, concise, superbly taught tutorial.

I am off to fold. :-) Really big smile!

Best to you always,


Thanks again Sara for the beautifully presented and crystal clear instructions. The model is beautiful. My only concern is how to eliminate that hole in the center (you allude to it in the video). Any suggestions?


You can add the crease pattern without collapsing the model into the "waterbomb/preliminary base". This isn't as quick and easy, but does decrease the stress put on the central point considerably.
Or try collapsing the outermost star first and then moving towards the center star. This should put less pressure on the central point, too.

Hope it helps,

-- Sara
