Make a fun 3D paper sculpture that rotates endlessly to display your photos!


Start with four of your own photos or combine them with some of our cute valentine messages... These are my friends Orelia and Carey, who agreed to be the Valentine's Day Kaleidocycle Spokesmodels for 2009.


We slice, dice and stretch your photos --- you download this as a .jpg file. Print, score, cut, fold and glue. We have complete directions in slideshow format at http://foldplay.com/kaleidocycle.action I'm interested to know how clear they are. I'm happy to answer questions or trouble shoot. I like to use a light cardstock, but regular paper will do. It just won't be as sturdy.


The kaleidocycle rotates endlessly, so your sweetheart keeps coming around again and again. The motion is really addictive.

A kaleidocycle is much cooler than a store-bought card (not that you were planning on buying a card anyway, but you know what I mean!).
