Intriguing Yule Tide Stellation

A pentagram, bisected, flipped, and folded makes a much more interesting star, but only in 3dimensions. Consider it an excellent excuse to make a simple model that looks exceptional.

The inner pillow form began as a foam cube sawn into roughly the correct shape with a serrated knife. The foam  was then layered over in coarse stitched cotton batting, with some loops penetrating to the center of the opposing face.The pillow form cover is white satin, and so a little fragile.

I feel like I got a head start on this one already. I've seen the template work twice now, and the shape is one I want laying around in canvas. I'll tack on the completed shell pix as soon as I've made it.
