use your scissors to cut out the body of the AutoQuin.
Step 3: Fold the Body
Fold along the lines to make a the pyramid shape. Do not fold the tabs down all the way.
!! Do Not Glue Yet !!
When you think it fits together good go to next step.
Step 4: Snip Arm Holes
If you don't have an exacto blade you can still snip the arm holes out with scissors. If you lightly bend, do not fold, the panel you can carefully snip on the line to make a small slit where the arms will go through.
Step 5: Assemble the Point
Now that the tetrahedral top of the body has been prepared it is ready to be assembled. use an adhesive to adhere the tab to the back of the triangle completing the point.
!! Do Not Attach The Bottom Yet !!
Step 6: Cut Out the Arms
If you have not cut out and lost the arms already, cut them out now. Try not to loose them before you make it to the next step.
Step 7: Slot the Arms
Push the arms through the slots so the Auto will have arms.
Step 8: Seal the Base
Use your glue stick on the tabs for the base of the pyramid. Do not be afraid to pinch the edge of the base if you need to make it stick together better. The AutoQuin frame is very durable and will not collapse if assembled carefully and correctly.
Step 9: Rejoice
Congratulations! Bask in the glory of your fully assembled AutoQuin!
