Start off with a square origami paper, color side facing down.
Fold it in half:
Open the paper and you should see a crease in the center:
Now, fold both halves to meet the crease in the center:
Fold the paper in half again, this time from right to left.
Open it back up:
Fold both halves to meet the center crease like so:
Pry open the top left corner:
and press it down to make a triangle:
Repeat the fold for the other 3 corners - top right, bottom right and bottom left. All 4 triangles meet in the center:
Now, lift up half the right side from the center:
and fold it over:
Fold the paper in 2, bringing the bottom half up to meet the top.
Bring the left tip over to meet the dash line shown in the picture below:
Do the same for the other side:
Repeat the fold for the right tip, bringing the right tip to meet the crease:
Repeat the previous step for the other side:
Make a slight crease on the right side and make an inside reverse fold:

Now, make a crease on the marked line shown below:
