Today I'll show you how to fold this lampshade. It consists of 2 stacked pentagonal antiprisms. The folding process is very similar to the pentagon fold that I showed before.

Step 1: What You Need:

-homeprinter, pdf-reader
-scissors or cutter
-basic folding skills
-the crease pattern, attached below (red - valley fold, blue - mountain fold, black - cut off)

Step 2: Folding Instructions

Good Luck!
