Step 12: You're done!

If you have followed all the steps correctly, you should have an Icosahedron.

Feel free to remix the idea, by adding your own decoration. Maybe paint it, varnish it, cover it with paper, put a LED in it, etc.

I like the look of the little candle inside it, but fire and wood don't go well together. Neither do heat and hot glue. But it still looks cool!

cool. gotta love platonic solids... (platonically of course)

Would it work to make 4 of the pentagonal "lids" and stick em together?

Nope. You can make three lids, but the fourth wont fit anywhere. Nice play on words, there!
