How to make a pyramid out of supraballs
Form a single strand of balls.
Break off nine balls, and attach the two ends to form a ring.
Transform the ring into a triangle. Pinch three of the balls in the circle together with your thumb and forefinger, forming a point. The circle now looks like a teardrop. Holding the point in place, push the rounded end of the teardrop inward, forming two new points. This completes the triangle.
Repeat Steps 2 through 3 until you have 16 triangles total. This will not require the entire strand of balls.
Select four triangles, and snap them together to form a larger triangle. Do this by snapping three of the triangles together side-by-side in this pattern: pointed side up, pointed side down, pointed side up. This forms a base for the larger triangle. Snap the remaining triangle, pointed side up, above the middle triangle of the base.
Repeat Step 5 three more times for a total of four large triangles.
Snap the four triangles together to form one large triangle. Do this by snapping three triangles together side-by-side in the following pattern: pointed side up, pointed side down, pointed side up. Snap the remaining triangle, pointed side up, above the middle triangle of the base.
Bring the three points of the triangle together, by bringing them upward and inward, forming a three-dimensional figure. By snapping the points together, the sides will naturally snap together. When all the points and sides snaps together successfully, the result is a four-sided pyramid.
