Intro: Origami Icosidodecahedron, No Need for Glue
Hi, this is my first instructable so apologies if this confuses anyone :)
No scissors needed, or glue, or paper-clip or....well any other type of fastener because the interlocking folds do job perfectly. Great ornamental pieces that can be hung up or turned into a lamp, try using different colours, sizes and patterns.
Paper squares (30)
~1.5-3hours depending on size.
Btw sorry for the terrible resolution pictures, I dropped my camera in a peat bog so I had to use my phone instead.
Making squares. The pictures are pretty self explanatory. Experiment with different sizes but this size makes a small hand-sized ball.
This is the base of one module.
You have to make 30 of these to make the ball shall, if it took you along time to understand it, have fun!
Some trial and error may be used first time, but the general idea is pentagon, triangles on pentagon's sides.
It looks great on fireplace or windowsill or strung up on a ceiling, I normally put LED lights inside to make it a lamp.
