    How to do it
    Guide step %d
    1.
    Cut a sheet of design paper in half; this is now a rectangular piece of paper. Note that the paper has a unique design on each side, so one sheet of design paper gives you two different looks.

    2.
    NB: Each step of the origami folding process is shown using plain paper, making each pleat and fold more visible. The first fold is made lengthwise. Un-fold.

    3.
    Fold each side of the paper towards the fold in the middle, making a “door”. You may use a bone folder to make sharp folds.

    5.
    Pleating: Un-fold the paper completely and make a 2cm fold inwards across at one end of the rectangular piece of paper. NB: We have here chosen to make diamond shaped baubles with pleats with a 2cm gap, but it can be varied according to taste and ability – larger or smaller as you prefer. The smaller the gaps between each pleat, the more difficult the folding.

    6.
    Continue the pleating/concertina folding carefully and precisely along the length of the paper.
