Especially for the Newark Ladies.. A Tutorial.

Here you are - the step by step to your folded topper! I was going to do a video, but my video's on my phone are MP4, so don't upload to youtube. So.. sorry but pics it is!

Start off with your paper pattern side up.
Fold this piece of paper into a triangle, open up, fold the other way into a triangle to create a cross in the middle of the paper.

these are the folds shown - and the large cross in the centre to mark where the lines cross.

On all four edges of the paper, bring into the middle to create a gatefold. Use the cross in the centre to fold into.

Bring all four corners into the centre of the marked cross, and crease across.

Bring in the top edge to the centre cross. Push out the corner and fold in the next edge.

Repeat with sides two and three.
When you have finished pulling the sides in and corners out, you create a windmill type of thing!

Put your finger in each of the pointy out bits and flatten out onto the top of your square. Repeat in all four corners.

This is what it looks like when all four corners have been flattened out.
Fold each corner section back onto itself to point to the outside.

The last thing you need to do is to fold the four sections which are pointing to the inside, back on themselves to open up the middle.

Now, if you've folded it correctly, this is what you should end up with!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
