## Step 1: Step 1: Preperation

Before you start you will need a few things.

#1. Paper (preferably colored)

#2. Scissors

#3. A Pencil

## Step 2: Step 2: Making the Triangle

First you have to make a cut a perfect square.

Now that you've done that, you need to fold it over to make a triangle and then you do it again.

Now you have a double fold triangle.

## Step 3: Step 3: Cutting the Triangle

Now you need to draw lines across the triangle, except they do not touch the edge.

I have included a raw computer drawing of that, because I couldn't get a clear picture with my camera.

Next you cut along the lines you have made, and it's that easy!

## Step 4: Step 5: Opening the Triangle

This sounds easy but it's not.

Be careful, or you may rip the paper and ruin your project!

First you open up from the left side and then from the right side, and you've opened up the triangle.

Now you need to try to open it up.

Do you see the very small diamond in the middle? Good, grab it and pull up.

## Step 5: Step 5: You're Done!

Now that you're done you can hang it about in a lot of ways...

You can make a lot of them and string them up all in a line...

Oh the possibilities!
