How to assemble Flextangles

You print them out and color. I was trying to be mindful of what would match up so make really cool designs when turning the flextangle.

You need to cut out and using a ruler and a pen or bone folder, score the lines so it’s easy to bend into place.

Most templates show you exactly where to glue. You want good glue that won’t come undone!

First time trying to flip it can be hard, it just needs to be loosened. After you have it, flip and flip and flip! It’s so mesmerizing!
