Modular Origami Icosahedron

I'm a fan of geometry and bright colors. This modular origami icosahedron brings them both together in one fun project. Modular origami involves folding multiple numbers of a single unit which are then assembled into a larger piece. An icosahedron is a 20-sided geometric form. Plato associated the icosahedron with the element of water. A video that shows how to make this origami is located here.
