the speks star hexacontagon step-by-step:
create a chain of speks following this pattern.
form a ring of 5 speks. wrap your chain of speks around the ring to create a pentagon. continue until each side has 4 speks. the shape will not be flat.
repeat step two using a chain of 15 speks to create a pentagon with 3 speks per side. add a spek to the center.
pick up your pentagons, one face up and one face down, interlock one edge and fold the shapes together.
repeat steps one through four until you’ve created 5 star point pentagons, 6 darker pentagons and 1 lighter pentagon, as below.
arrange the pointed design pentagons around the lighter pentagon to form a star. lift them off the table and form half of your hexacontagon (that’s a shape with 60 sides)!
create the other half and snap 'em together! want more how-to's? back to speks ed.
