Tape, tape, and more tape...

One more spiky tape ball. This time you can see the process.

1) Fold a piece of tape about 60 degrees.
2) Fold one end over the triangle. If it doesn't line up, peel both folds back and try again.
3) Continue to fold the ends over the triangle until there isn't enough to make another triangle, and cut the extra off.
4) Color the triangle with a permanent marker.
5) Repeat steps 1-4 120 times.

6) Tape 5 triangles in a row, with an extra triangle's worth of tape on each end. Tape the non-colored side.
7) Tape a triangle to the middle one of the 5, with an extra triangle's worth of tape on both the sixth triangle and the other side of the row of five.
8) pull the middle three of the row of five up into a pyramid, fastening with the extra tape flap.
9) Connect 5 pyramids into a star, cutting off flaps or adding new ones as needed.

10) Continue adding pyramids around the edge. It starts to curve back in on itself.

11) Attach the last pyramid by sliding it in, then sticking a paperclip in the joint and pressing the flaps until they stick.
12) Cover the outside with tape. Otherwise it is too fragile.
13) Recolor it with permanent markers, since the last step obscured the color.
