Ever since I've started origami, I've always been looking forward to building something great; like a swan, made with a ton of pieces. Not just cranes and stars. But, even though it's not that great, I'm proud of this creation. Meet the origami icosahedron. People with some skill and experience should do this easily. Others may have a hard time. I first did while connecting all the pieces together. All 30 of them. But we'll get to that in later steps. You ready? Start!

Step 1: Materials and Requirements

Like mentioned before, you shouldn't take this on unless you're experienced and somewhat skilled. I know I sound professional, but I'm not. :(. Though I'd like to be. :). Anyways, you're gonna need 30 sheets of square paper. Like in my other origami Instructables, (check 'em out!) I would suggest you just get squares because you're gonna be spending half the time with the scissors. >:(. To save time and trees, use square sheets. And multi-colored, preferably.
Actually, its an icosahedron, only with faces that are convex pyramids. A figure created via lines connecting the tops of the pyramids would be a dodecahedron, though.<br> <br> I've done similar stuff for a year or so.

Thanks for correcting me! Just changed the title and added another pic.
