On her website, Happy Folding, Sara Adams (Germany) presents a video showing how to make a pentagon and how to fold the origami carambola.

Compliments of the Season to all of you! I have made it a point to have an Origami Star as my Christmas Tree Topper for the last couple of years and have continued with that for this year, too. The Shirt As with all these designs, try to start with a relatively clean, crisp bill. It will make it much easier. All folds should be sharply creased.
