Making Tessellations Start from corner End at next corner Bring cutout to opposite side. Don’t flip cutout over when bringing it to opposite side! Don’t place cutout to next side! Tape edges together. Make another line from corner to corner. Cut it out. Bring it straight across Imagine what your final shape could become. Design interior lines to make anything out of your shape. Trace shape anywhere onto background paper. Trace same shape so that it interlocks with the first one. Repeat tracing your shape so that interlocks again and again. Repeat until page is filled. Fold a second color paper into 1/4. Cut making 4 shapes at once. Make sure your shape fits into traced background paper. Place in alternating pattern filling page. Start gluing carefully. Place small amounts of glue close to edges carefully! Spread glue flat to the edges. Do the same for small pieces on the edges. You may slide small bits of glue under any edges that stick up. Trim excess paper. Make sure all shapes are flat and excess glue is wiped away. Draw your design in pencil. What ever is added to one is repeated in all.
