  • Step 1

    Begin with a chain of Speks. Fold it back on itself every 12 Speks to create a rectangle that is 12x4.

  • Step 2

    Add a chain that is 4 Speks long and double it back on itself until a 4x4 square is attached to the top of the rectangle. Repeat this process at the bottom of the rectangle so that you have two squares along the edge with a 4 spek gap in the middle.

  • Step 3

    Create another 12x4 rectangle attached along the sides of the small squares. This creates a larger 12x12 square with a 4x4 hole in the middle. Repeat until you have 4 12x12 squares. Align them to make one large sheet.

  • Step 4

    Fold the sheet as pictured above in a zig zag pattern.

  • Ta-da

    All done!
