The model is quite easy to fold:
- Fold the square’s diagonals, then fold all corners to the center (blintz the square).
- You have four triangular flaps. Bisect one 45° angle of each, folding the crease as mountains to hide the paper below, and in such arrangement that the free space you create in the center is kite-shaped.
- Now, fold the result (a smaller square with a kite of the other color in the center), as if you were folding the standard traditional crane, and you will get this model.
