Step 2: Crease in Half

  1. Change the orientation of the diamond back to a square.
  2. Crease the paper in half lengthwise to make a valley fold.
  3. Then crease the paper in half widthwise to make a mountain.

Step 3: Fold the Sides In

  1. Push the two sides in and allow the origami to collapse into the contours of the mountain and valley folds.
  2. Press down on the paper to make a permanent crease
  3. The result will be a kite-like shaped paper like shown in the picture.
