Step1

Take a standard 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Trim it so you have an 8.5 x 8.5 inch square.

Step2

Fold the square in half.

Step3

Fold the rectangle you have just made in half again so it looks like a smaller square. Make a crease, and unfold it again so it looks like a rectangle with a crease down the middle.

Step4

Step5

Step6

Fold the above shape in half down the middle. Now you have kind of a cone shape with a very pointed end and a wider end.

Step7

Cut off the wider, uneven end. Experiment with cutting it off at different angles.

Step8

Now, take the triangular shape you have left and make cuts on the edges. Cut out small triangle shapes, heart shapes, rectangles, etc. along all of the edges.

Step9
