Roulette Star (Design by Evan Zodl)

Roulette Star (Design by Evan Zodl)

I folded one other modular star this week and I am pleasantly surprised with this particular design. Evan Zodl’s dainty star is very much inspired by Maria Sinayskaya’s modulars and comes with intricate folding but the surprise in this is the so-easy assembly!

Usually, it is the assembly which requires pegs and holders to keep units in place, but this one is as easy as they come. Duo colored paper works best for this model, especially to make use of the center design. This is a lower intermediate design, but beginners with practice in folding, will get by easily with the help of Evan’s video instructions.

I have used my go-to pack of small-ish 4 inch Japanese Washi papers to fold this design. You can use normal kami paper or even wrapping paper to fold this design. Evan suggests to use 4 inch sized paper at least to fold this design, with the resulting model measuring around 6 inches in size.

I chose this simple modular origami design as a gift one of my colleagues at work. This is different from John Montroll’s Omega star since this particular ones uses 6 sheets (or 3 pairs of different colored paper) whereas John Montroll’s design uses just one sheet of square origami paper.

This model took me about 15 to 20 minutes to fold and I found it pretty simple.

Paper to use:

I used 3 pairs of different colored printed origami paper measuring 8 1/4 inches and double sided. You can also select 6 sheets of paper all of a single color if you wish to do so. The paper you used should be square in shape and you cal also experiment with with using wrapping paper for this model.

There is a very detailed instructional video on YouTube.com and this is what I have followed in order to fold this model. I hope you too find it easy to follow…
