Now take the top right corner and fold it in, like you did just before. The top corner should come to meet the center fold, and it will be about 1 cm away from the fold of the larger triangle underneath it. The two folded corners should not meet.
Open up the two folds you made. The paper will be marked by the corners you brought into the center. Take the corner of the paper again, but this time align the outside edge of the paper with the crease from the fold you just made. This will make a thinner triangle shape which points to the bottom.
Do the same on the other side. Fold the left corner to make the outside edge of the paper meet the crease from the fold. Once you have done both sides, fold the edges over twice. Now you have the original triangle shape up the top but the sides are folded twice over themselves.
