I have made a video for this before but I thought that it might be easier if I chose to write it out with pictures. Please comment what you thought of my first instructable.

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need

For this project your going to need three materials

~ a piece of rectangular paper ( colour doesn't matter )

~ a writing utensil ( for decorating when you're done )

~ clear crafting tape ( I like to use scotch tape )

You'll need your piece of paper for this step.

You need to fold the piece of paper in half "hot dog style" as seen in picture one.

Now unfold that and fold in the two top corners as seen in picture two

Then fold the tip in as seen in picture three

Then fold it back out as seen in picture four

Fold it back in half

Your project should look like picture five
