Step 5: Inner Folds

Take one side and cross it just over the center line.

Then you want to take the other side and put it in the little gap left behind by the flap.

Step 6: Inflating

At the bottom of the Tulip you should see a little tear which is where you need to blow air in order for it to inflate. Remember not to blow too much air into it.
