Stage 3: Now turn the model over and fold this flap down along this already existing crease. And fold this point up until this point right there. And now fold the whole model in how of making one big mountain fold like this. Now fold this flap down. Try to make a 90 degrees angle right there. And make a fold. And now make an insight refers fold along these lines. Now fold this point upwards. And make sure that these two points or these two edges are at the same height. Now, open up this flap and fold this inside. Like this. 5. Stage 4: And now for this flip, right there, like this, and at the left side as well. So start from this point and fold a little bit over like that. So we get something like this. Closely model and grab this point. And make an insight refers fold. In order to make the till. 6.
