Step 1: Getting the right paper
To begin lets make the basic folds first, fold the paper in halfs both diagnol and horizontal, vertical.
Step 2: Collapsing the folds
This creates a square with inside flaps. Have the opening facing you exacty like its shown in the pictures.
Step 3: Making the bird base
First take one corner from the flaps and fold each one to the center forming a 'kite' shape on both sides. Then, take the kite's top and fold it down creating a triangle shape, this will ensure that the next step will be easier. FLIP OVER.
Step 4: Petal fold
Step 5: Star Shape
Congrats you completed the bird base! This base has 3 layers, take the first layer opening it up and you will find 2 seperated segments. These will be the legs. Fold both of them diagonol to the center of the piece. Then reverse fold both crevices, opening them up and firmly pressing and creasing to create a star shape. You should have a 4 pointed star, if not you messed up, FIX IT THEN MOVE ON! :D
