The Super Spirograph rectangle may seem boring compared to, say, the cloverleaf layout, but it can actually be useful.
What else could you do with rectangular shapes? How about a picture frame, or a matte to fit between the picture and the frame? Use colors that complement the subject of the picture.
Scrapbooking idea alert! (That’s baby me on the left.) I’ve written another post about using Spirograph designs for frames, whether physical or digital.
With the two lengths of straight super parts available, you can make several sizes of squares and rectangles. Use the four C curves for the corners, as they form a 90-degree angle.
You could make different sizes of rectangle by changing out the straight pieces. A shorter rectangle could allow you to make a design around the outside (an epitrochoid) as well as on the inside (a hypotrochoid) on standard letter-size paper, as in some of my designs below.
