Hi and welcome to a small part of my world :)

I decided that MAKALU wasn't enough of a challenge, so I made it double!
Double the units, double the difficulty, double the fun :)

Makalu is one of the 5 Himalayan peaks of origami folding, and this double model adds a little spice to the mix!

This is an icosidodecahedron (origami is a great way of learning about geometry and polyhedra).

Ok lets get started.

What you will need for this instructable:

1) Time.
2) 15 squares of paper.
3) Patience.
4) Good music.
5) Mild OCD (not essential, but it helps)

Step 1: The Paper!

Firstly, good music! Easily embarrassed is great origami music: https://soundcloud.com/easilyembarrassed

Take your 15 squares, and cut them in half.


Now take your 30 2x1 rectangles, and cut them in half again. Accurately.

You should have 60 4x1 rectangles now.

I know I keep saying this, but I will eventually get around to making one of these. These'd be pretty sweet as a stone or metal sculpture too!
I have been wanting to make metal sculptures for a while now... <br>I'll post an instructable if I ever get it done...<br>
