Hello this is my firsrt instructable so go easy and please leave tips to help me improve my other instructables that i will most definitly make now on...
start out with a square peice of paper or make one by folding a regular peice of paper to size like i did
fold the piece of paper in half diagonally, unfold
now fold it in half diagonally the opposite direction unfold
now fold it in half horizontally and unfold
now fold it in half horizontally in the opposite direction
now take one point of the square and fold it to another point it should fold nicely
now fold the opposite corner to the same bottom corner it should as well fold nicely
now fold both of the sides in, to form almost a kite shape
now filp it over and do the same as you did in step 8
now unfold the last 2 steps you did
now fold the top part down as shown in the picture
now lift the bottom corner upwards and fold along the crease lines and flatten to form a triangle do the same on the other side
now you should have on side with 2 loose pieces and on the top a solid piece fold the 2 loose pieces in towards the middle repeat on the other side
now fold it in half to look like the picture
