This fold took its inspiration from the little puffed stars we used to make by tying overhand knots in perf strips. (Remember perf strips?) Also, one night, I got to wondering, what happens if you make a bird base from a pentagon?
As it turned out, the model was much cooler when made from a decagon. Some purists eschew folds made from convex polygons other than squares. I am not one of them.
These look spiffing on a Christmas tree.
Want a CP? This one’s for 8½ × 11 and this one’s for A4. They were made to extend to the sides of the paper, so you’ll see a quarter inch or so missing. You can always shrink to fit in the print dialog.
