    I saw a tute recently for making a hexagon "flower" from the circle cut for a yo yo. And, now I can't find it or remember where I saw it!! Anyone know???? Thanks! P.S....it was made by folding the circle into 6 sections.

    Try this, cut a 2 inch circle of paper, fold it in half.
    Hold the folded circle, rounded edge out, on a ruler, mark at 1/2 inch from the left and 1/2 inch from right. Draw a line to the rounded edge and fold from these marks and you get six equal sections.

    Fold from the center of the folded edge to the outer mark.
    Maybe that sounds clearer, try it. And if someone has a formula for this, let me know.

    My method makes 6 sides.

    Sorry, I don't have a picture to show you. I was sitting here at the computer and just figured it out. Looks like misoop found what she was looking for.
