Comments:Each of these lidless, star-shaped boxes was made from a single pentagonal piece of paper, cut from a 15 cm (5.9 in) square sheet.
Double-sided paper works best for this model, since some of the reverse side of the paper is visible on the sides and bottom.
The designer's video demonstrates how to cut a pentagon from a square sheet. You could also make and use a pentagon template.
Some origami purists argue that models entailing cuts, or made from other-than-square sheets, are not true origami. However, I have read many books and articles which say otherwise. They reference traditional origami models from long ago which utilize other-than-square sheets of paper and which incorporate cutting.
In any case, these little stars make very cute party favors at the holidays. They can also be strung in garlands, hung as Christmas tree ornaments, or used to create mobiles.
