Diva's Challenge #318: Diptych

I now believe the Diva is PSYCHIC!!!! This is the second week in a row where she has challenged us to do something that has been on my list of "must trys". This week, we took a tile and folded it in half, on the diagonal, to create a three-dimensional piece, with a "hinge" in the middle. Maria had done many of these on the Mosaic app, as well as a video. Even so, I wasn't sure how to go about this. So, in the spirit of the Method, I began with gratitude and appreciation. The rest followed quite painlessly.
So much so, that I made two of them.

On Facebook, I recently saw a video to make your own fidget toy--from a sheet of paper!  This had me so excited! I wished I was still teaching middle school so that I could teach it to the kids! But since that's not about to happen, I'll share it with you! This flexible prism has four sides. You can turn to prism inside out and thus change the sides that you see. I used Mooka, N'zeppl, Bales and Crescent Moon for the different designs. It was really fun to make, and I even like to play with it! Reminds me of the changing patterns in a kaleidoscope.

Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderfully dimensional week!

    1. I had so much fun making my paper fidget! Thank you for sharing! :)

  2. Dear Jennifer, I totally agree with you...the DIVA challenge is such an inspiring source of inspiration of things we need to try!!!
    Your diptychs are absolute stunning, I live the Molygon , with the connection in the middle, and the other one as well. I did not try diptych before , even if I saw them from Molly, but now I had a motivation to do it and enjoyed it very much!
    Thank you so much for sharing the link for the paper fidgets. I saw them several times and wondered how to make them.... When I am back home from my holidays I will definitely try one! Yours is great!

  3. They're all amazingly beautiful - the molygon diptych especially 😍 - and I am definitely going to try and make my own fidget toy! Thanks for the inspiration. 🙏🏼

  4. Both of your Diptych tiles are super. The second one is quite unique with the squares. Thank you for the link to the Flextangle page. I'm anxious to try one out!

  5. I love your Diptych tiles. They are beautifully done. Your flextangle is fun too. Heidi Sue brought the pattern for this to one of our Tangle meetups and we spent the time trying to make them. Yours is great!
