This video describes how to fold two fantastic origami models designed by Ekaterina Lukasheva: a Sparaxis star, and a Sparaxis kusudama (sphere). Ekaterina kindly gave me permission to make this video accessible to you.


Hi Sara! I was wondering if you could make a video for one of Joel Cooper's masks. There are CPs for two of them, and you could fold the CP and then show how you did it.

Here's the link to one of them
Thanks! bye

Looks like a very elaborate project! I'm tempted to try it, but not really for a video...
It might make a nice time lapse, but I fear it'd take too long to record currently. With a 1-month old baby at home, anything that requires more than 2 hours isn't really an option - and I have to be lucky to get a time window of 2 hours. ;)

How about this?

I know, I know... this is a link to diagrams, so why don't I fold them myself? Well, for one thing, my sister is named Laura, and for another thing, I think it would be nice to have these diagrams a bit more well-known by being on YouTube where they are more likely to be seen. So could you do this? Please? With a cherry on top? Unless you don't like cherries, in which case you're entitled to an IOU that will probably never be fulfilled. Oh well...

Hello Sara,
Thanks, I enjoy your videos!
First star made from printer paper.
The secound star I made from a transparent 42g transparent paper in 2 Colors with 7,5x15 cm, not easy but I made it.
I will check LEDs to light it up ;-)
