3D Stars Origami Tessellation

Something a little different this time around. It's a three dimensional fold..

I'm generally not a 3D folder. Instead, I gravitate toward the fold it flat style. I like the challenge of figuring out how to make it work out that way. 

But I randomly came up with this and it's kind of neat. 

I was able to work it out that everything kind of locks in place. 

It's a sort of riff on the classic flagstone of the same format. Open back hexagons and triangles make six pointed stars. 

I've included below a really primitive crease pattern. 

Basically you create folds off of the hex's points. You pinch them to lock the structures.
