Step 5: Fold the Backbone

Using the lines on each side, fold one up and the other down.
Unable to do last step
This is really neat! It would be even better if you included a PDF of the pattern already laid out. Just draw it out, scan it directly as a PDF, and include it in one of the steps. <br><br>(I include PDF patterns with some of my instructables, and people really respond well to it. Just a thought!)
The PDFs are easy to find on the internet. I was just trying to do it without a template because so many people make tutorials about using a template.
Ah, I see. Very good!
Any links for the PDF's? i cant find any D:

ah, thank you general
DNA is right-handed. Your paper helix is left-handed.
I happen to know that General Eggs is left handed. This could have contributed to this. Still it's a cool project!<br>
oops... the way it twists really just depends on the way you make your folds, but thanks for pointing that out!
I love this! Very clear instructions, thank you.
Nifty. I wish there was a video demo too though because I'm so dumb, I don't get it. Thank you!
Aw, ChrysN said awesome already - OK AMAZING, my mind is turning right now with a thought.... click, click, click
Cool, that looks awesome!
