Origami Chair Step 1: Start with a 6 inch (15cm) square origami paper, color side down.
Origami Chair Step 2: Fold it in half on the vertical axis. Crease well and unfold.
Origami Chair Step 3: Now fold both the right and left sides to meet the center crease. Crease well and unfold.
Origami Chair Step 4: You should see that the paper is divided into 4 sections. Use a scissors and cut of one section. We will work with the remaining 3 sections only.

Origami Chair Step 8: We now need to do a squash fold. Starting with the right corner, unfold the crease you just made. Open the paper slightly and then squash it down to form a triangle.
Origami Chair Step 9: Repeat and make a squash fold on the left side.
Origami Chair Step 10: Now fold the center flap up to meet the top edge.
