Step 4: Fold (little)

Fold all the inside corners a little ways to the middle. It doesn't matter how far, just make sure they are all equal. Make them stick straight up.

Step 5: Fold

Fold the corners to the edges of the little corners and unfold them a little bit. Flip over.

Step 6: Again...

Just like before, fold the inside corners out a little bit. Again, make sure they are all even.

Step 7: Finished

Good job! To make it fly, spin it in the air.
