4 different colored Markers, pens, pencils, etc. of your choice
A pen or pencil
Step 2: Templates
Once you've gathered the supplies the first thing you need to do is to make the templates, I've made a PDF version so you can download and print them off below.
After you've printed and cut them out fold along all the lines.
Although if you'd prefer to make them by hand continue to read on. Start by making a 3 by 3 inch square on the card stock, Then mark the 1 and a half inch spot on the top and bottom of the square, Next start at the half way point and draw a line to the corner, repeat on the other corner to form a triangle, Then flip it around and repeat again to make the zig-zag pattern, finally draw a line down the middle of them and cut them out, then fold along all the lines, You'll need 3 of these to make the toy.
Once you've cut them all out it's time to give it color, the colors you choose can be anything you want, but to make the color changing effect work you'll need to color it in the pattern shown above. the picture above explains the pattern to color it.
Step 4: Putting it together
Now line them up in a row as shown, this is how it will go together (make sure the hour glasses are the Sides that will connect and not the half diamonds) Then put tape on the edges and attach them to each other, finally take the two loose ends and tape them together to form a loop.
