Whether you choose to use this model to make a hexagonal wall quilt, embellish a card, or just enjoy it backlit in a window, folding this tile is a series of "Wows". The symmetry requires repeating each step 6 times. The first 2 repeats will be actively demonstrated after which you will independently fold the remaining 4 repeats (though clarifying questions will, of course, be answered). The most challenging aspect of folding this model is managing all the flaps at various stages.

Supplies

Bring to class a hexagon cut from duo kami-weight paper with a point to point diameter of at least 9 inches (23 cm). Check YouTube for videos on cutting a hexagon from a square or rectangle.
