This is a shooting star origami created by Kunihiko Kasahara. It is folded from a 10.5 x 29.7 cm (approx. 4 x 11,5″) rectangle, that is to say an “A4” sheet cut in half lengthwise. You can totally opt for another format: for instance, a more elongated rectangle will fold into a longer shooting star. Beware though, the paper should not be too thick. For an optimal look rely on two-tone metallic gift wrap, which will allow your star to shine a thousand lights! ^_^
