Prepare your 2 sheets of square paper. In this case, I used gift wrapping paper because of the pretty prints. :)
Set the other one aside. We're working on one square for now.
Fold in half horizontally.
Then fold vertically.
Fold inwards to close horizontically.
Then open and do the same vertically.
Fold as demonstrated for all four, following your fold lines.
It should end up looking like this.
Fold open each one as seen in the video.
Repeat for all four. It should look like this.
Fold open each flap, but not completely.
Do for all four, and you should end up having something like this.
Fold the bottom up like the photo. (This is why you don't fold the flap completely)
Once again, repeat for all four.
Fold it like so.
Again, repeat for all four. :)
My favorite step: rip it! (No, I'm not kidding.)
Set them aside and take your other square sheet.
Repeat everything from step 3 to 16.
Insert triangle in between for all four.
You should have something that looks like this.
Gently push the folded sides inwards, while pushing the top down with a finger. Your side pieces may fall down, so you might want to glue just under the flaps that connect your pieces.
It should look like this if you've down the previous steps correctly.
Grab your rectangular strip of paper.
Just fold it little by little.
Insert one end of the strip on slit, and the other on the other side.
Maybe put a rose inside?
I realize my paper is too thin, so the side pieces may fall easily. You might want to use thicker paper. Enjoy!
