    I have a .skp model of this. It is a very complicated shape. Explaining how to fold it would take a book. If you can read .skp files, I could send you the file. I could give you the templates but making the star might drive you nuts. :)

    .skp files are SketchUp files. SketchUp is a free 3d program which you can get here:

    It is my favourite 3d program (because it is the only 3d program I can operate :mrgreen:). I recommend using the original model for reference when you try to assemble the template.
