Wow!!!!!!!

Hey Sara you surprised me with this video. I didn't know you are going to make a video on that model now ....You didn't even post on the plans section that model.

Surprises

Hehe, sometimes you have to surprise the viewers. ;)
I at least like getting surprised. I also hope this video is a bit a (pleasant) surprise, because my next video wasn't due for another 2 weeks.

well it was a pleasant

well it was a pleasant surprise and i fold it but it doesn't close so i'll try again

Make More?

Hi Sara! I was wondering if you could (please) make instructional videos for some other models in the book. They look so cool!

Not in the near future

I'm not sure this will happen in the near future. I first want to present some other models. So if you're keen (which I totally understand), I suggest you buy the book. It's excellent and has many many diagrams in it - I counted 64. Also see: http://www.happyfold...

Stellated Octahedron

Greetings from California... It took me a couple of attempts before I got a model I was somewhat happy with, but your instructions are really good and relatively easy to follow. Thank you for posting an instructional video for this model I look forward to the next one.

Great!

Hey Sara,
Your tutorial is great! I managed to follow until the last part, but i got lost at the tucking the apple (the bottom part) and i just anyhow squeezed it :P

Octahedron? Really?

Could you please describe how this is an octahedron? I've tried to find the right count, but it seems I have not been looking in the right places.

Stellated Octahedron

A stellated octahedron is basically an octahedron, where you put a pyramid on each of the faces. So if you count the number of such pyramids, you'll see there are exactly eight.
