Repeat steps 2 and 3, Once you have the basics, start to put in some of your own creativity, by adding features. In my one i have cut some toilet rolls in half to see the marble as it rolls through, but you could make all sorts of features like jumps and maybe even a loop. Here is a video of mine.

Fun marble run. I have made lots of these with folded paper ramps taped to my walls.
