- fold in half on the longer side
- open and fold each corner to the middle as shown on picture 2
- fold your folded corner again to the half as it shows in picture 3
- repeat same steps on the other half of paper . YOu should end up with sort of airplane in picture 4
- fold all together in half and you are DONE

When you paper is folded line them up and even out its base by simply cutting bottom. We need to have same shape
