Origami Mushroom Step 7: Here comes the slightly tricky part to the origami mushroom....but don't worry, it's nothing we can't handle! Hopefully, the pictures below will show you clearly how to do this step.

First, open up the right flap. See the crease you just made in Step 6 as indicated by the 2 arrows below?

Well, we're going to fold that crease over to the center.

Origami Mushroom Step 8: We need to fold the tip of the paper down to meet the center crease. I'll try to explain it but the pictures probably speak for themselves better than I can.

To do so, there needs to be an additional crease made. This crease should line up with the inside section of the paper. Make the crease then fold the top down to meet the center as shown in the pictures below.

Origami Mushroom Step 9: We love symmetry in origami so you know the next step right? Yes, repeat Step 7 and 8 for the left side!

Open the left flap, make the additional crease to line up with the inside section of the paper, then fold the top down to meet the center.
