Than repeat with the right corner. After that , take the top edge and fold it down to the side edges as shown in the picture. Do that for both sides

Step 4: More Folding

Pinch points A and B together until they meet at point C. Now A and B should point straight up. Fold them to the left and right to create a crease and then return them back to their starting position. Push down on the point where A and B meet at the top. They should be able to push down flat. When you finish it should look like the last picture
