In this video, you will learn how to make an Origami Binary Star designed by Xander Perrott. This is an excellent modular design and it's not very difficult to fold!

Diagrams for this model can be found in Xander's brand new book, Folded Forms, which contains over 30 of his original designs, all folded from rectangles. Be sure to grab yourself a copy here.

This is variation 10 of the Binary Star. Each of the units is folded from a bronze rectangle (which is simply a rectangle with a dimension ratio of 1:√3). To learn how to cut a bronze rectangle from a square, check out my video tutorial here.

Tag photos of your Binary Star with #ezorigami or upload them to my YouTube Gallery to be featured in my next tutorial. Special thanks to Xander Perrott for granting me permission to create this tutorial for you. Be sure to check out his work here.
