That may well be a new tongue twister - try to say it three times real fast!
CZT Angie Vangalis created a template for tangling an icosahedron that is absolutely incomparable.
I ordered a stack of them recently and completed my first one. It was so much fun that I want to spread the word.
The icosahedron is embossed on a cardstock weight paper approximately 12" x 18" that I found took very well to a Micron. While Angie has several paper colors to choose from, this is one she calls Torrilla.
I decided to tangle a different pattern in each of the twenty triangular sections. It was a wonderful project to have sitting on my kitchen table. Whenever I had a few minutes, I'd add another tangle or two.
This is what it looked like when I finished the tangles ~

Did I mention that this was FUN?!
