On the light colored one it is full of scotch tape on the outside. On the yellowy one I used a manilla folder to print on and I put it all together with white school glue, small utility knife for scoring, needle nose pliers to hold the flaps together, and the whole thingy was glued on the inside. Oh yeah, I used a toothpick to put the glue on the flaps.

Thank you for sharing your photo, molly. It is really neat to see the final results.

I have produced an updated version with a couple of small changes. First, I have fixed a minor bug and the facet image's UNDO history is no longer affected (it does not make sense to have to UNDO stuff just because my script is copying some layers). Second, I have decided that it would be more useful if the text layers were merged into one layer and the facet layers merged into another, rather than producing 24 different layers. If you wish to treat each side separately (for example, a different color text for each facet) then you will need to use the paths that are created to select each side. (It seemed less likely that someone would want to do this compared to more common operations such as outlining the text.)

Here is the link to the webpage: http://chiselapp.com/user/saulgoode/repository/script-fu/wiki?name=sg-platonic-calendar.

And here is a calendar I created using the script in conjunction with Map Object applied (multiple times) to a mercator image from NASA.

An engineer with a lack of artistic creativity? I think not! I love the globe idea, Saul, that's brilliant!
