Step 1: Gather Materials

Picture of Gather Materials
You will need 8 sheets of sqaure paper (semi-thick, but not cardstock-thick, and glossy paper works best).

Step 2: Make the first piece

This step has a few sub-steps.

Step 1: Put your paper color-side-down.
Step 2: Fold the paper in half from the bottom edge to the top edge.
Step 3: Unfold so it is flat again, with a crease in the middle.
Step 4: Fold the two right corners down to the crease you just made.
Step 5: Fold the paper in half on the original crease.
Step 6: Fold the top left corner to the bottom of the model.
Step 7: Flip the model over.
Step 8: Fold the top right corner to the bottom of the model on the same crease you made in Step 6.
Step 9: Open the end of the model you have been folding up from Steps 6-8 and fold it inside of itself. (VIDEO BELOW)


Step 10: Flatten it out and you're done!
