hey guys what’s up Jeremy Shafer here check out the new model I just
designed this is a stellated octahedron it’s the same basic shape as
this stellated octahedron which I taught in this video but with this octahedron
it’s missing some of the faces and that allows it to do this really cool
transformation it squashes in three different directions like this like this
and like this isn’t that cool want to learn how to fold it ready set
here goes alright so for this model I used a 12
inch square of this decorative paper that I bought from Michaels crafts or
maybe from jo-ann fabrics make sure that you cut off the tops in order to make it
a 12 by 12 inch square but for the purposes of this tutorial I’m going to use an
ordinary sheet of ten inch Kami so let’s begin white side up and fold
diagonally in half try of make really precise folds and crease sharply. now
unfold and rotate and fold in half in this direction. and unfold now before we go
on this model takes quite a bit of stress right at this point so I’d
recommend I don’t usually say this but I’d recommend using a little tiny bit of
tape right at that corner if you’re using Tyvek or something that’s really
strong or even Wyndstone that probably isn’t necessary but okay now let’s fold
it in half again and fold this corner to the top and turn over and fold this corner to
the top we’re making a water bomb base so open the big pocket put your hand inside
all the way to the bottom and push the two sides together so that it flattens
into the waterbomb base let’s rotate and fold this corner to
the top and rotate and fold this corner to the top right where the crease
touches the top and turn over right to left and fold the bottom edge to the top
and when you do this try to hold the layers together so that they don’t slide all right now let’s unfold completely and let’s fold this edge up on this
crease but we just need to pull between these two points like that and rotate
and let’s do the same thing on this side fold right on this crease
like that and this corner sticks up and let’s continue around and now bring this
flap up and both corners stick up okay so here we have an upside down table
with really short legs turn it over and now we’re going to fold this edge up on
this crease so we’re folding between these two points like that
and rotate and fold this edge up on this crease and this sticks up and continue
around folding between these to points and rotate and the last side. okay so now we
have a medium-sized upside down table with the medium-sized legs now let’s
turn over and we’re going to fold on this inner square so pull the edges up on
that crease and do the same on this side and this sticks up and continue around okay so here we have a really small
upside-down table with really long legs let’s keep it upside down and fold this
flap up and fold it down and rotate and do the same thing here. fold it up
and down and up and down okay now we’re going to fold all four corners
to the middle now let’s fold this flap down so that
this edge aligns with this edge and fold this flap over and let’s repeat on the
other three sides okay now unfold all four flaps and fold
this flap up so that this edge aligns with this edge and continue around okay now unfold the four flaps again
and now fold this flap up so that it’s even with this edge like that and rotate
and fold this flap up and rotate and fold this flap up now on the last flap
we’re going to have to put it underneath here so lift up this flap and fold this
flap up like this and put this flap back down okay now we’re going to tuck this
flap into the pocket try to make it go all the way inside and
let’s repeat on the other three flaps so it’s opening up the frontmost pocket okay now we’re going to squash it so
that these two sides come together so open it it like this put your finger
right in between these two layers and these two layers and just push the two
sides apart something like that and let’s go over to the other side and make
sure that these two layers are on this side and these two layers on this side
and now we can flatten it try to make sure that it stays together so we’re
just flattening it like this okay and make it go back to how it was so push
these two together like that and you can do that again just exercise that a
little bit okay and flatten it again so it’s like this now we’re going to try to
push this side and this side together so when you do that make sure that make
sure that the flaps stay in the pocket and you want to open these two layers
these two layers go this direction and these two layers there are two layers
there even though you can’t really see them. there they are.
go this direction and same on the other side okay and now we can press here and it flattens like this and make it go
back like it was and just exercise that a little bit and
now we’re going to push these two sides together again and when you do that you
want to make sure that this doesn’t happen because we need both layers to go
down here and both layers to go up here otherwise it’s going to mess it up so
just watch out for that how we doing on this side this side looks good you might
have to just kind of push inside to get them to behave just try to see where
it’s getting stuck and try to free it so we got that going and now go back to this
way and you just want to exercise it so that you can flatten it easily in this
direction and in this direction and now you can go from this direction directly
to this direction so if you’re holding it like this then you just push your
thumbs together and your middle fingers together
and then bring your two fingers together on this side and on this side so it’s
like that so it squashes in these two directions and it can squash like this
so basically it just squashes in all of the directions it’s just a neat little toy. so there you have it and in this
position where these are even this is open and this is open and this is
straight this is the stellated octahedron so there you have it and I
think it’s best to try to do it out of decorative paper or you could decorate
the paper and that’ll make it look pretty cool I think so there it is okay
hope you guys enjoyed folding this and see you next time bye bye or squish ball
