Origami Techniques

Please flip the paper over and make mountain folds at the four corners.

Mountain folds are shown as solid lines. If you flip the paper over, it

Please also apply valley folds to the bottom corners.

Then, make some more mountain folds as shown below.

Now, please flip the paper over again. Let's go ahead and make the valley folds.

Valley folds are shown as dotted lines. If you flip the paper over, it's much easier to do.

Now you've got all creases you need to create the shield.

Let's put the two corners together as shown in the picture. Follow the creases you've already made.

Using the flap you've made in 5, fold it inside as shown.

Repeat 5 and 6 to the other three corners.

Slip the next corner underneath of its neighbor to lock it in place.

Fold the remaining flap inside to complete the shield.

Finished! Now find a good spot to put it and show off your math skills!
