Step 1: Easy Part #1

This part is easy. Just take a square piece of paper and fold it in half diagonally both ways.

Step 2: Easy Part #2

Again a part thats easy. Fold the 4 corners into the center.

Step 3: Easy Part #3

Yet again another easy part. Like #2, fold the corners to the center.

Step 4: Easy Part #4

Unlike #'s 1,2, & 3, you have to fold just a little bit of the corners.

Step 5: Slightly Hard Part

What you have to do is to hold one of the small folds, and take the flap behind it, then pull it over until it covers the small fold like an umbrella.

Step 6: Color

Color and Enjoy!

    Please explain the final step more fully as I don't get it. As this is the "pretty" bit it needs more clarity. Help.
