  1. Take the square sheet and fold it diagonally from opposite corners to form a triangle.
  2. Fold the left vertex to meet the top vertex, and then repeat with the right vertex. Make creases.
  3. Unfold the last two folds, which will reveal the triangle again and two flaps created by the creases.
  4. Fold the right flap along the crease made in the previous step, and fold the left flap along the left side's crease as well.
  5. Now, fold the right side towards the center, ensuring the right vertex of the triangle meets the top vertex.
  6. Next, fold the left flap towards the center.
  7. Before folding the left flap, apply glue to the center as shown in the top left picture above.
  8. Stick it in place and cut out the top portion.
