Editor’s note: The base for Pentagonal Brooches 3 and 4, while independently discovered by Arnold Tubis in 2022, was previously published in 2011 as Estrella Sakura by David Martínez. It appeared in 4 Esquinas: Revista Latinamericana de Origami no. 6, a digital magazine. Arnold’s folding method is different, and the Estrella Sakura is complete at step 15 of Arnold’s Pentagonal Brooch 3. Arnold wrote in an email that he has a feeling that many simple to intermediate geometric models, such as these, are likely to be rediscoveries. But, in any case, the two published here have good finishing details and are very much worth folding.
