It is believed that the civilization and culture of mankind appeared in Egypt, and there is still a symbol of energy storage is the pyramid. They call it a sacral figure, which can contain a large stream of charged particles, so many people make small pyramids from ordinary paper, inside which are empty. There you can put the blades and knives that are blunt, so that they again become suitable for cutting.

**Paper Pyramid: Schemes**

**Do-it-yourself pyramid: paper making methods**

Even a beginner can make a paper pyramid, you just need to follow the instructions correctly.

**Method 1.** You need a sheet of paper 40 by 40 cm. To begin with, it should be folded from corner to corner, i.e. connect 2 opposite sides. These manipulations should be done 2 times, resulting in a double triangle - this is the base, the corners must be folded to the center. After turn the figure and on the reverse side to do the same. Here you should straighten the rhombus on one side 2 times and bend the paper inside, also on the other side. Now the ends of the pyramid are bent, so the star with 4 ends should turn out. And to give volume, you just need to pull the pyramid by the opposite ends.

**Method 2** In the first place you need to outline the lines of the square diagonally, for this you should bend and unbend the opposite ends. Then the corners of each side should be raised up and laid in such a way as to make a square. The corners of the upper square along the side lines need to be bent inward. Then the upper triangle must be gently bent down, and then, holding the part with your hand, turn it over to the other side.

On the reverse side, the same thing is done: the corners are bent and pushed down. The pyramid is almost ready, you only need to raise the corners located at the bottom - upward. It is necessary to straighten the corners until the square is visible below - this is the bottom of the pyramid. The blunt end of the scissors should smooth out each side of the pyramid, each edge.

**How to make a pyramid of cardboard?**

The pyramid is a symbolic object. Our ancestors also believed that it could bring harmony to the outside world. At home you can independently make it not only out of paper, but also of cardboard.

**Method 1.** On a white sheet of paper should be drawn square and 4 triangles. For example: a triangle with a height of 26.5 cm, and its width (equal to the side of the square) is 14.5 cm. Now, using scissors, you must cut out all the details of the pyramid, while leaving a small indent for the overlap. Put all the elements together and spread the glue on the joints, and then let them dry. After that, it is possible to paint the finished figure with paints (preferably with acrylic) or pencils.

**Method 2** You can glue the pyramid using math skills. Such an article is called "Pyramid with a golden section." Its value will be 7.23 cm. Now we need to recall the geometry: the coefficient of the golden section is 1.618. Now this coefficient should be multiplied by 723 mm - it turns out 117 mm. This will be the length of the base at the pyramid itself, with a height of 72 mm.

Now, according to the Pythagorean theorem, it is necessary to calculate the size of the faces of the triangle. The length of the pyramid should be 117 mm. If you multiply 117 by 117, you get a square base, which is necessary so that the pyramid does not turn out to be empty. On the cardboard you need to draw all the details and cut. Then connect the faces of the triangles. When connecting the last of them, you must first lift the frame vertically, and then glue it.

Corners need to be glued carefully and as smoothly as possible, this will affect the stability of the product. If the shape of the bottom is planned, then it needs to be glued at the very least when all the faces have been glued together and have already dried.

**Method 3.** You can make a big pyramid of the old box, for example, from the refrigerator.

The length of the base will be approximately 50 cm. To begin with, you need to draw a pattern of a figure on cardboard, taking as a basis the golden section rule, as in the previous example.

Should result in isosceles triangles. Between themselves, they need to dock on the side and glue together with tape so that the side of the cardboard with the inscriptions was inside the shape.

Now there should be a pyramid without a base. It is necessary to cut another square, the side length of which is 50 cm. It will be needed for stability.

**Method 4.** Pyramid of cardboard gift. It can be used as packaging for the main gift. For its production will need: a stapler, scissors, 4 small squares of cardboard, adhesive tape, thin tape, a pencil. We need to take 4 squares of cardboard, 1 of them should be immediately put aside, on the other, draw triangles with a pencil, and then cut them, and this should be done with all 4 triangles. Each side of the square should be attached to the triangle with the shortest part. After that, the triangle must be glued to the base of the square with scotch tape.

Next, you need to take 3 triangles in your hands and glue them together so that inside you get a "house". In this case, no triangle is not necessary to glue. It must be left open so that something can be put inside the figure.

It is easier to make a pyramid of small size, if you print out a pre-scan of the figure.

After using the ruler to bend the edges of the figure. The ruler is needed to ensure that the edges remain smooth. After you need to glue the joint of the sweep with the help of the "moment", if you wish, you can still make the base so that the figure is stable.

If you put a pyramid of paper or cardboard indoors in a certain place, it will have a positive impact on a person’s life. For example, if it is located in the eastern part of the room, it will have a positive effect on health, in the south-east and south it will help to find financial stability, in the west it serves as a guardian for children, and in the south-west it improves family relations. Decorate your home and give such storage of positive energy to your near and dear ones!
