Step 1: Materials

One square sheet of paper! O.o

Step 2: The First Blintz Base

Ok, get your piece of paper and fold it horizontally to make a rectangle
Now, fold it vertically to get a grid of 4 squares.
Next, fold in the corners to make the grid of 4 squares into a grid of 4 triangles.
Then do to all other corners
Then you have completed a blintz base!

Step 3: Blintz Base!

Ok now flip it over and make a blintz base!

Step 4: Not a Blintz Base

Ok now take all the flaps and fold it up to make it look somewhat like the first picture. (not precise)
Should look like this.

Step 5: Almost to the Almost Finished Step O.o

Flip it over.
Take the flaps and fold up to the top of the square

Step 6: Almost Finished :)

Flip it over
Then take the flaps that have a line through them because of a blintz base and fold them over (see picture)

Step 7:

Flip it over.
YOUR DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, I must say, this is similar to Michael G. LaFosse's Lotus Blossom. the difference is yours: fold the 4 corners, then flip over... Michael's: fold the 4 corners, do this again in the same sides, then flip over.. But is it really a U.F.O?

    I've never heard of this Michael G. LaFosse figure, but I am sure that I did not copy this in any way. Like the title says, I found this creation making blintz bases.

     If it's unidentified, flies and is an object or origami, then it is a U.F.O. (unidentified flying object/origami)

    yes... because if you do though it right (with printer paper) it will kinda float/fly and land smoothly... and i guess it would have to be a U.F.O because it is Unidentified Flying Origami :)
