Step 1: Start with a square sheet of paper, and turn it so that it looks like a diamond. (The side facing away from you will become the color for the body.)

Step 2: Diagonally fold the top and bottom corners together, making a horizontal crease along the full length of the paper from side to side.

Step 3: Grab the front and back of the top of the triangle and fold down so that the point you are holding goes past the base of the triangle (see the picture in Step 4 for reference).

Step 6: Rotate the model 90 degrees so that the sings point up. Grabbing only the front wing, fold down so that a “white” diamond appears in the center of the model. Please note that the diamond may be a different color depending on what kind of paper you use (see the picture in Step 7 for reference).
