    i managed to fold it thanks for the guide. needed to make 5 for my son's art class tomorrow.

    I tried it. I did it perfectly all the way through until I got to step 4. How can you fold that without making it completely like a kite? It only went like a kite for me.

    You should use the final image as your introduction image as well, instead of the scan of the instructions you followed.
