X-Acto Knife Work

Our first project involves a lot of paper cutting, and artists and designers use X-Acto knives (no scissors). Thus, we are going to practice our X-Acto skills.

We will all execute this worksheet until we successfully complete it (expect to repeat the process many times over). For some, this version of the worksheet may be helpful (it has full sheets of each individual challenge in case you want to practice)

Then, we will execute the 5 Platonic Solids worksheets. Please make the printed lines end up on the outside of the finished work. Put your name on each of your shapes. A Platonic Solid is a 3D shape where each face is the same regular polygon, and the same number of polygons meet at each vertex (corner). For example: the Cube is a Platonic Solid: each face is the same-sized square and 3 squares meet at each corner.
