  • Step 1

    Create a chain of speks following this pattern.

  • Step 2

    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.

  • Step 3

    Repeat step two using a chain of 15 speks to create a pentagon with 3 speks per side. Add a spek to the center.

  • Step 4

    Pick up your pentagons, one face up and one face down, interlock one edge and fold the shapes together.

  • Step 5

    Repeat steps one through four until you’ve created 5 star point pentagons, 6 darker pentagons and 1 lighter pentagon, as below.

  • Step 6

    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)!

  • Step 7

    Create the other half and snap 'em together!
