By following these simple step by step instructions you will be able to successfully create a tessellation.
Draw a line on one horizontal and one vertical side of your pre-cut 3X3 index card. You can use organic or geometric shapes to make up your lines for this part of the exercise.

If you have an idea that you would like to explore please inform your instructor so that they may assist you.
Step 4
Then trace your design into each square making sure to align the right angle from your design to a right angle on your grid. Continue to do this until your shape fills the entire sheet.
