Instructions for making a trihexaflexagon

(these are also included in the download file)

  • First of all, fold along every crease line on the strip, back and forth, ready for easy flexing.
  • Now start at diagram 1. and go through each diagram in order. Each diagram (except 3.) has a heavy line with 2 faces marked u and d. Fold along the heavy line, so that after the fold the faces u and d are together, with u facing up and d facing down onto the table.
  • At diagram 3., there is a triangle underneath y. Tuck the mini strip x and y beneath this, so you can only see x.
  • In the second to last diagram, stick the two faces u and d together with glue or double sided tape.

Happy flexing...
