Origami Instructions: Sakura Star (Ali Bahmani)

Finished model: star with a diameter of 7.5cm (3in), height: flat or up to 1.25cm (1/2 in)

This video describes how to fold a fantastic origami "Sakura Star" designed by Ali Bahmani. Ali kindly gave me permission to make this video accessible to you. It can be shaped in multiple ways, including as a star and a cherry blossom (both of which I demonstrate in the video).



I've been watching your videos for quite a while now and it has just occurred to me that I have never expressed my thanks for the effort you put into them and for their their usefulness!

So, from the UK, many, many thanks for all your hard work and obvious expertise! The clarity and precision of the folding and explanation are brilliant and joyful to follow.

Again - THANK YOU! And please keep up the good work!


Hi Sarah,
I like your videos very much and I want to say thank for your excellent guidance during folding. The subject comes from the fact, that I also tried to make this Augustar from another video I attach the URL for your convenience. The collapsing of the model worked very well, but then to shape the windmill it is very difficult to follow the presenter, because the color of the paper is not well selected. It is very dark and do some reflection. It would be great a help to me if you can adopt this video and show me how to continue. Many thanks in advance for your feedback. Thanks a lot. Best Regards from Jürgen from Bonn Germany. Here the URL:
