Create your own nerdy icosahedron with some simple modular origami. Ok, technically it's not "origami" origami because the units are made of rectangle pieces of paper but if you call it origami I won't hold it against you :)

It can take awhile to fold all the units for this little guy but I think the end product is worth it. 

Step 1: Materials

To make an icosahedron ornament, gather these things:
-5 sheets of green origami paper
-5 sheets of red origami paper
-5 sheets of gold origami paper
-something to hang the ornament with such as some string, a paperclip, or an ornament hook

I used smaller origami paper that was about 3"x3" and it made a model about the size of a bulb Christmas ornament. 
<p>To anyone who is struggling with step 6, I found this YouTube video to be helpful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7qE_Tc8e4g&amp;index=2&amp;list=PLF68C48227A0E2CD3</p>
<p>Came out pretty nice. A little harder with so many colors but it came out nice!</p>
<p>Ahhhh. finally figured it out, you have to open them much farther than i originally thought</p>
<p>step 6 is very very unclear</p>
<p>Step 6 doesn't make sense at all. I've been trying for hours but still couldn't connect the pieces.</p>
<p>Easy Model to make and very nice hold when put together. I recommend this modular model to any beginner as a first big project.</p>
yeah correct it like forever like it never ends
Somebody's got to ask this, so it might as well be me...<br><br>Can you make this out of LEGO?<br><br>:-D
LOL! I'm sure it can be done but I definitely don't have the pieces!
Vewy pwetty.
That looks awesome! I love putting together little puzzles and this looks like it would be a lot of fun to put together.
Thanks. I love little puzzles too and I guess assembling these kind be a bit like that haha. You should totally make one and post pictures. I'll be posting more models like this soon :)
I love that you included a video. That is a very fancy ornament. :)
Thank you much. I try to include videos on all my project and this one was a must because the spinning ornament was so mesmerizing
