STEP ONE: Cut 8 equal squares from matching paper.
STEP TWO: Take one of your squares and fold it in half at the corners.
STEP THREE: Fold the outside corners in to meet the centre fold.
STEP FOUR: Fold the new outer corners in towards the centre fold to create a diamond shape.
STEP FIVE: From here, you need to create a folded cross as shown by the dotted lines. Do this by folding the top point down and opening up again.
STEP SIX: Turn the diamond over, with the fold lines pointing towards you. Use these fold lines to turn up the bottom corner to one side.
STEP SEVEN: This is the tricky part; fold the vertical point in half, followed by the ‘west’ facing point. You should now have a shape that looks like the second image.
Repeat the above steps to create 8 of these.
STEP EIGHT: Take one of your 8 sections and open the back of the taller point to reveal a hidden flap. Take another section and tuck the smaller point under this flap until snug. Repeat with all 8 sections until you form a complete circle.
STEP NINE: Gently press the sections into the centre until you achieve the desired effect.
