Step 1: Supplies
You will need a pencil and a ton of paper!
Step 2: Concept
The Idea of this Instructable is to do what you may think is impossible...drawing a circle with a dot in the middle. You may think that is simple, but here is the twist: YOU CAN NOT LIFT YOUR PENCIL FROM THE PAPER!
Step 3: Experimenting!
When my friend told me about this challenge, I thought it was impossible! I counted how many attempts it took me, and the number was...17!
For this project, You can only use 1 piece of paper, but you can do whatever you want with it. That means you can fold, tear, smash, or anything else.
Count how many times you tried and leave a comment with the number below. If you are stumped, go to the next slid for a video on how to do it.
Step 4: Solution
*****YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE THE ANSWER*****
Fold one corner into the center and make a dot. With out lifting your pencil make a line over the folded area and then make the circle. (See the video for help)
Note: I did not make this video. I am using it and giving full credit to the author. It is just too difficult to show with pictures for someone to understand. Thank You for Understanding!
