Third in the Platonic Solids Instructables series.

This instructable will show you the pattern for making an Octohedron or D8 out of cardstock. Quick and easy this should take about 10-15 minutes.

Since we made our D4 at 8mm and D6 at 6mm we will make our D8 at 6.5mm. This should be a rough aproximation of the scale you would see D&D dice.

This is a slightly more complicated version of the Isohedron. We will start by making a base triangle just like the Isohedron, but will modify the body pattern.

Step 1: Materials

Materials you will need:

Cardstock or thick paper
Butter Knife

Nail Polish Remover: Just incase you accidentally superglue your fingers.
You know you could just get a set of these for 50 cents each right? Great instructable either way, think I might stick with my dice though.
Yeah, but those that you buy are tiny. I want BFD. BIG FRELLING DICE!
Yeah, youre right they are tiny good instructable. :)
How many of these are you going to post? L
There are 6 I have planned. D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20 I have made them all except the D12, as it is a bit more complicated
