Step 1: (optional): Do This Step If Your Paper Isn't Already Square
If your paper isn’t already square, an easy way to get your paper square and ready for folding is to simply fold your paper from any corner to until it is touching the edge.
Now trim all the excess paper off of the edge making a triangle. Now you simply unfold the triangle and there you have 2 perfectly square sheets of paper!
Step 2: Time to Get Folding
Fold both sheets of paper in half horizontally like so
Fold both sheets of paper horizontally in half again
Now fold the two pieces of paper vertically in half
Now you undo this fold leaving a crease down the middle
Pull the left side of both papers and twist it downwards stopping at the crease made in Step 3, repeat this with both sides to make it look like the shape above
Flip over both papers
Fold tip of papers down like this
Should look like this when done
Fold the two points over the each other to looking like the picture above
Flip one of the papers over so that they look like this
Rest the papers on each other making sure they look
exactly like this
Fold the triangle parts into the parallel cavities
Should start looking like this when you start folding the point of
the triangles into the cavities
Should look like this when you’ve folded the first two triangles into
the cavities, after it looks like this flip it over and repeat the process
Step 12: The Finished Product
Final Product should look like this when you are done, congratulations!
