    First of all, you'll need 30 square papers. For the sake of sapping my entire origami paper collection, I just cut a bunch of squares into quarters.

    Where there are approximately 135 degree angles, this is where you will need to fold. Fold a valley fold across both of the 135 degree angles (where the edge is folded). I know this sounds confusing, but when you understand it, it'll be a piece of cake!

Try, try again! If you can get a couple done, you'll see it through new eyes and the rest will be a blast. You usually get a couple of tricks under your belt, and then you'll be assembling like a pro!
