I love origami and paper boxes and I admire those who are able to create them because, unfortunately, I'm totally unable...I'm not able to do either a paper boat or a paper airplane!
This project, taken from an original that I found at home, is one of the few that I can do..hoping to learn soon to build new boxes.

Can be printed or traced on a paper from the PC screen.
I did it measured about 8.3 inches wide and 9 inches in height but may be smaller or larger..isn't important.
Black areas are the sides to be cut. Red and pink are the parts to be fold.
With a pen draw the graphic on a cardboard and marks all the important points.
Cuts the outlines of the graphic and the four pieces of the base. Creates holes that will serve to close the pyramid
Bend the pink lines (shorter ones) to the outside bend of the chart and the red lines (longer ones) to the inside
Join the two outer sides of the chart with glue and close the pyramid.
To keep it together I used a cute scotch to give a nice and "stellar" effect.
Order indicated by the numbers, put the pieces of the base and close the bottom of the pyramid.
Join the bent parts to form a star and close the top of the pyramid with the strip of fabric
