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.
