90 Module Origami Dodecahedron




For this project I used 1.5 inch by 1.5 inch pieces of paper, but for beginners I'd suggest 3 inch by 3 inch, or 6 inch by 6 inch pieces of paper. You will need 90 pieces of paper to be able to make this project. You may have to click on the picture to get the instructions that go with the picture. Enjoy!

    Awesome project! I'm trying to replicate it. It would help a lot to be able to see the line that is being folded, for instance drawing a mountain/valley line on the paper or on the image. Making the paper a little more prominent in the images would also help, for instance a closer photo or bigger paper. Origami is one of my favorite things to give away, so love this project.
