Step 1: What You'll Need
A piece of construction paper.
Glue or tape
6 different kinds of Wrapping paper or just some paper that has designs
Step 2: Cutting the Paper
Cut a 7 by 7 inch square out of the construction paper. Next fold the square in half and cut out the middle 4 by 4 inch square.
Step 3: Folding
You will be making 12 2 by 2 inch squares on each side. Fold the paper so that each 2 by 2 square ( you are now making the squares ) has 2 creases and each crease is folded both forward and back.
Choose one design of paper and cut four small squares ( they should be a little smaller that the folded squares on the paper ) then glue them on where is it shown on the picture. Next get another design and glue on where it is shown on the next picture.
Do the same thing with the next designs. Note that some may be on the other side of the paper.
