A paperfolding paradise
The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell
|Paper Rosettes / Froebel Star / German Star / Swedish Star|
page attempts to record what is known about the origin
and history of the origami design known as Paper Rosettes
/ Froebel Star / German Star / Swedish
Star and by many other names. Please contact me if you
know any of this information is incorrect or if you have
any other information that should be added. Thank you.
As far as I know this design first appears in the historical record in 'The Girl's Own Book' by Lydia Marie Child, which was published by Clark Austin and Co in New York in 1833.
