  4. Flip one sheet, fold it so that the corner is open and crushed. Fold the back side in the same way.
  5. Flip one sheet and fold it along the fold line to match the corners.
  6. Make creases along the fold lines so that the corners match. Fold along the fold lines. Tilt the corner to the right. Return the folded part.
