The Seven-Pointed Star Brooch, designed and folded by Arnold Tubis. Diagrams were drawn by Marc Kirschenbaum. See PDF diagrams.

We show in this article how to fold a seven-pointed star brooch from a regular heptagon. Directions for an easy way to fold and one-cut an accurate regular heptagon were detailed in Issue 71 of The Fold.

We have inserted a bead at the center of the brooch for decorative effect.

Editor’s note: The first part of this series showed how to cut a regular heptagon. A link to the article is in the text above. Diagrams for two more heptagonal brooches are on the way.
