Platonic Solids

More folded Platonic solids, using recycled paper. I am really interested how the text is fragmented as part of the folding process.
Also the geometric drawings to investigate the relationships between the structures-

Dodecahedron and Icosahedron: both have 30 edges, but the Icosahedron has 20 faces and 12 vertices and the Dodecahedron has 12 faces and 20 vertices.

This shows the tetrahedron as parts of the star, the octahedron and the cube (twice)
