Item details

This pattern falls under the category, looks impressive but is easy to do. “Forest Queen” is a flexagon puzzle book structure that allows you to view 4 pages from a two sided structure. It looks like a magic trick but it just a hinged shifting of sandwiched pages. Besides getting the step by step illustrated directions on how to make this simple but impressive flexagon structure you will also receive a ready to cut out illustrated book and as a bonus, a blank pre-measured pattern for you to create your own flexagons.

To see how this flexagon works, see my YouTube video at:

This book is a beginner project, one of the easier patterns in my shop. I have tried to make the directions easy to read with step by step illustrations and concise directions. My testers have said, “It worked like a dream! I really didn't have any trouble with the directions at all! Great work!” That being said, some of my testers had problems with printing the PDFs. The front and back of the book need to be printed, aligned, back to back, right side up. If you are uncertain with how your printer prints or have had trouble lining things up in the past, you might want to take your file to a reliable quick print service to have it printed.

The pattern kit includes nine zipped A4, letter size PDF files:
4 pages of step-by-step illustrated directions
2 pages/two-sided illustrated book to print out and assemble (with a page for the hinge)
2 pages/two-sided blank pattern for you to create your own flexagon books

A reminder that this is not an actual assembled book but a book to print out and put together. This project should take you less than an hour to complete. Users need just the print outs of the files and a few simple tools; a craft knife, scissors, glue and a bone folder or spoon; to assemble the book.

How instant downloading works:
After Etsy receives confirmation of payment for your order, you will receive a link to download the three PDF files. If you do not get the link, you can download your files in the "Purchases" section of your Etsy account. Convo me if you have any questions or trouble.
