Step 1: Start by Having Your Origami Paper on Your Table With the White Side Facing Up
Step 2: Fold the Paper in Half and Unfold It
Step 3: Fold the Two Sides Parallel to the Middle Crease Into the Middle Crease and Unfold
Step 4: Rotate the Piece of Paper 90 Degrees and Repeat Steps 2 and 3 So You Have 16 Small Boxes
Step 5: Fold the Paper Diagonally and Unfold
Take the bottom left corner of the paper and fold it over to the top right corner of the paper and unfold. Then take the bottom right corner of the paper and fold it over to the top left corner of the paper and unfold.
Step 6: Flip the Origami Paper Over to the Colored Side
Step 7: Fold Each Corner of the Paper to the Center and Unfold
Step 8: Flip the Paper Over So That the White Side Faces Up
Step 9: Fold Two Opposite Sides Into the Center Crease, DON'T UNFOLD
Step 10: Fold Each Short End So That It Forms a Six Sided Figure
Fold the paper along the two small diagonals on the bottom of the paper. Push and fold the excess paper down so that it forms a rooftop/boat like shape (but this isn't the magic boat!). Repeat this step for the other side so it looks like a six sided diamond (see pictures above).
