    Learn how to make a super cool origami star that can be used as a dish or hung as a decoration for your Christmas tree!

    This origami model is created from a pentagon, which I'll show you the easiest way to cut from a square sheet of paper―it's easier than you think!

    If you use paper with different colors or patterns on each side, you will get a pretty cherry blossom design either on the outside or inside of the bowl.
