Step by step instructions with photos


Cutting blanks


We cut out a square of 7.5 cm x 7.5 cm from a sheet of white paper. I took one-sided colored blue paper for these purposes, but there is nothing to worry about. Because the other side is white!
We cut out a rectangle of 15 cm x 7.5 cm in size from a sheet of black paper. For this I used thick, double-sided black paper, but the usual one-sided paper is also quite suitable.

Make the top


We take a square piece of paper and fold it twice on the diagonal with the white side up.

Unfold the paper and fold it in half diagonally in the opposite direction.

Leave the sheet bent diagonally. Take the ruler and pen / pencil and divide the left side of the triangle into 3 equal parts.
Raise the lower right corner up and fold in the direction from the center point of the lower side to the upper third of the left side of our triangle.

In the same way, we lower the lower left corner upwards from the center point of the lower side to the upper third of the right side of the triangle. At this stage, you need to act very carefully and carefully, because the upward-curved corners can be located asymmetrically. If this happens, straighten the side folds and align them so that they are located to each other as symmetrically as possible.
Bottom corner homemade lift up and attach it to the central point of intersection of the left and right corners. Thoroughly smooth all the folds along the lines with a ruler or pencil.

Spread the paper completely. In its central part, we must form a regular hexagon.
