Step 1: Fold

Start with your paper angled like mine. Fold in half downwards.

Step 2: Fold and Unfold

Fold in half, left to right, and unfold.

Step 3: Fold Corners Down

Fold the right corner down, so that the top touches the middle crease, but so that the bottom, the tip, is angled away. Do a mirror on the left. 

Step 4: Pleat

Pleat means fold backwards, and then forwards. I did this on this model by folding the tip down, flipping it over, then folding a little below to make the head.

Step 5: Round the Edges

Flip it back over and fold the right ,left, and bottom corners in, just a little bit to make the edges a bit more round.

Step 6: And You're Done!

If you want to, you can draw spots.
