## Document 7.5: Folderol

On each table at the bar are brightly colored, square drink menus, in plastic holders. The bartender tells you that your boss collected thirteen of these, took them out of the holders, and wrote various things on the backs. "Strange guy," says the bartender. "Seemed to have a lot of friends, though; come to think of it, they were pretty weird, too."

The thirteenth piece of paper has the following directions on it.

Fold each piece of paper as follows:

• With the colored side of the paper facing down, valley fold the paper in half along the center vertical line. Unfold.
• Valley fold both vertical edges to the center crease. Unfold the right-hand flap and valley fold the bottom right corner to the nearest crease.
• Unfold the left-hand flap, valley fold the upper left corner to the nearest crease, and refold the left-hand flap to the center.
• Valley fold the lower-left corner to the furthest crease.
• Refold the right-hand flap to the center crease.
• Valley fold the upper right corner to the left side of the paper...
• ...and tuck it under the flap.
• Make two mountain folds along the indicated lines.

Build a regular solid with 14 vertices, 6 of which have 4 colors (the 4-vertices) and 8 of which have 3 colors (the 3-vertices).

Pieces of the same color cannot be adjacent to each other, even at the corners (at the vertices and on the faces).

The flaps in each 3-vertex will spell a 3-letter word. The letters underneath the flaps will spell a 3-letter word that can follow the one on the flaps.

After you assemble the solid, read the letters you haven't used yet.
