Obsessive Behavior & Designs

My new favorite origami design is actually a simple one.  The 8-point modular star.  When I learn a new design that can be turned into jewelry I usually become obsessed with that one design for at least 2 weeks.  I fold it over and over until it is imprinted into my mind and I could do it with my eyes closed.  It is border line obsessive behavior.  There is something satisfying to me about modular origami; folding multiple pieces that interlock to form a solid, sturdy geometric form.

The following link is to a youtube video for all you DIY people who want to try it.  Keep in mind, the actual video is for making a Christmas ornament, but its the general design thats important.  It’s really simple, you just have to have patience, time and some awesome chiyogami paper.  Fold On!
