Making a octahedron

Introduction -- Making the Modules -- Making the Polyhedra -- Jim's Origami Page
The octahedron has eight triangular faces that meet in groups of four at each of six vertices. It has 12 edges, and thus uses 12 identical triangle (tr--tr) modules.

Most any coloring of the octahedron modules looks nice.
