Cootie Catcher Ball

Make 12 or 30 units of the traditional Cootie Catcher or Fortune Teller. Assemble them to get the finished models. Remember that when you assemble, you have to satisfy the following conditions:
  • Diagonally opposite "wings" are either both over or both under the neighboring units.
  • For every unit, two diagonally opposite wings are over and the other two are under the neighboring units.
Use miniature clothespins as assembly aid and remove at the end. Good luck!

12 and 30 unit assemblies:
(The 12 unit assembly is Rhododendron by Yoshihide Momotani.
The units are essentially cootie catchers with two additional folds.)
