Probably not. There are a lot of shapes that the Rubik's Magic can be in that aren't flat. Play around with it for a while until you get it into any
two by four state. (The arrangement of the square panels isn't the same for every flat position.) Then, this video
on YouTube will most likely help you get it back to the "standard" two by four state.
I hope this helps.
