If you’re looking for something to do while bearing the droll voice of an out-of-touch professor droning on about the Bubonic Plague, we’ve found the ultimate solution. Make a hexaflexagon!
I didn’t even know what hexaflexagons were until this morning but now I’m mesmerized. Flexagons are essentially flat models in geometry, constructed by folding strips of paper. Flexagons can be folded in certain ways to reveal faces besides the back and front, which means your mind will be blown.
In this tutorial, Vihart, a professional mathematician, teaches you how to make your very own. She’ll be releasing another hexaflexagon video in one week.

Village people, she’s cutting our books with an exacto knife, masquerading the brutal massacre as craft time!! I call MURDER. Where’s my pitchfork?
In a new DIY craft project, reality show star Lauren Conrad shows you how to take innocent little books and gut them so you can create trendy looking storage units for your extra mascara tubes and waxing kits. This way, people won’t see your oh-so-embarrassing collection of reading materials hidden inside the box (Fifty Shades of Grey, Cosmo) and instead mistake you as a literary genius.
It saves space and it makes you look smart. But I have to ask you Lauren, what did the books ever do to you? And what will Lauren Conrad’s Crafty Creations destroy next week? Retro VHS copies of Brat Pack movies? The thought…

I understand the awkwardness of reading an erotic novel like Fifty Shades of Grey on the subway. That’s why I’ve come up with this craftacular DIY manual, to guide you through reading it without anyone knowing the better.
Operation: Wrap Around
Reader: This is the ideal solution for someone with few resources and little time.
Tactic: If you’re not concerned about damaging the spine of the novel, wrap the front cover around the back to block the sultry title from the wide-eyed grandmother sitting in priority seating. If cracking the binding is a concern, consider the following: if you’re standing, face a wall so the title of the novel is blocked from other passengers and if you’re sitting down, balance the book on the top of your thighs. Disclaimer: If you choose the latter, it might be slightly uncomfortable to read the text at this jarring angle but your objective will be fulfilled and judgemental riders won’t know you’re reading about The Red Room of Pain.
