This is one of the models I had folded some time ago, but never got around to posting pictures of it. Designed by Miyuki Kawamura, this design is pretty cool. There are a few variations of this as suggested by the designer, and all of them are quite pretty.
It requires 5 sheets to form the star and you can use any kind of paper you like. Try not to use the really flimsy tissue paper else it will not really ‘form’ the curves you see in the pic, and will lost likely fall flat. Other variations of the Star Cruller would include making the star with 4 sheets and 6 sheets of paper. A design variation of this Star Cruller is the Twinkle Cruller (which I have not folded). Experimenting with the folds will get you the design variations.
This is a pretty easy and simple design and the folding sequence is really quick to get through. I have used regular Kami paper, which is single-side colored – 5 sheets of varying colors to fold my rendition of the model.
Diagrams to this model can be found in Origami Tanteidan Magazine – Volume 16 – 2005 (Issue 94). I do not know if the diagrams have been published anywhere else.
