Step 11: Some more folding :) (Please read the explaination)

Now I don't know how to explain this. (even though it's very obvious from the pic) Fold diagonally keeping the edge slightly covering middle line. That way by folding both sides, you an lock them together as shown in the 2nd picture. Repeat same on other side as shown in the 3rd picture.

Step 12: Should look like that. (Top view in 2nd photo)

Take care not to apply too much pressure or you will lose it's shape.

Of course you can use coloured paper or use a plain white paper and paint it yourself when it's done.
