Stellated Octahedron (design by Sam Ciulla)

 This model is from The Art of Origami by Gay Merrill Gross.  I was able to pick up the book used from Amazon for just pennies.  The large model is made from a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbooking paper. The medium sized models are made from 6 x 6 sheets of kami paper. The smallest ones are made from various 3 x 3 scraps of paper I left over from other projects.  All are made from one sheet of paper and assembled without the use of glue or scissors.  

This is considered an action model, because when it is placed on the inflated side, it will roll across a flat surface.
