    If you know about hexaflexagons, do you know about flexagons?

  12. More Nightmare     June 4, 2018

    You didn't even teach us how to make it unless you put the video into .25 speed

    But when you burn it… its HEXAFLEXA… gone…

  29. Maria Welch     June 4, 2018

    Vi how do you make a six sided one

  30. Autumn Hamster lover     June 4, 2018

    What about the 6 sided hexaflexagon

  31. Steven Clark     June 4, 2018

    So we know there are, I'll call them order-1 hexaflexagons (with 3 sides), and order-2 hexaflexagons (with I guess 6, I haven't checked yet). Are there order-3, order-4, even order-n? Also is there an order-0 hexaflexagon that doesn't flex so well because it's a mobius strip?

  32. Hunterdegreat     June 4, 2018

    i just take the corner of the slip of paper and fold it to the middle of the slip. It should make a nice 60 degree angle without much approximation, and you start cleanly from the edge of the slip of paper.

    Hexaflexagon merch is mood

  34. doot howell     June 4, 2018

  35. Clare Pearson     June 4, 2018

    Did you see how they used these at the beginning of the new wrinkle in time movie? I was so excited when I saw them in the movie!

  36. Abby Weiss     June 4, 2018

    I did one with a pattern and now I can do one without a pattern
