From top to bottom, fold and unfold **a square sheet** of paper. Along the diagonal, fold and unfold. Fold and unfold **the top right corner** such that the crease runs from the top-left corner to where the horizontal crease line meets the paper's right edge. Repeat with the bottom left corner.

Fold the top left corner downward so that it lies on the same level as the other two corners. Do the same for the bottom right corner. The letter "a" will now be folded into a 3!

More folding fun! Here are more letters that can be folded into a 3: b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z.

The intersection of the two creases represents the divide of 1/3 and 2/3. Repeat with the other corners.

Instructions

- Fold the bottom edge of the paper up to the top, making only a small pinch on the right edge. Fold the bottom right corner up, starting from the left corner and the little pinch you just made.
- Unfold the top flap. Fold the bottom edge up to the crease you just created.
- Unfold the little triangle flap.

Here's what you should do.

- Fold one piece of paper in half to make a crease and then open.
- Fold the top and bottom of the paper into the crease.
- Turn the piece of paper over so that the folds are facing down.
- Fold one corner up, so that it touches the opposite side.
- Fold one corner down, so that it touches the opposite side.

Begin by folding a piece of paper in half and then reopening it. Step 2: Fold each side to the center line and fold it firmly. Step 3: Turn over the paper. Step 4: Crease the bottom-left corner by folding it up and over to the right. Step 5: Continue crinkling the paper into a ball until all the edges are evenly distributed around the center.

The end result is a perfectly symmetrical cube! To unfold it, simply start at the bottom left corner and work **your way** up, rotating the paper as you go. The paper will unfold back into its original shape without tearing.

Origami is very popular in Japan. If you visit a Japanese museum or temple, you will often see examples of origami art. There are many different techniques for creating unique pieces of artwork using only sheets of paper and some time. If you have never tried it before, we recommend giving it a try!

Method 4: Divide the paper into thirds.

- Fold and unfold a square sheet of paper top to bottom.
- Fold and unfold along the diagonal.
- Fold and unfold the top right corner so the crease extends from from top-left corner to where horizontal crease line meets right edge of paper.
- The location where the two creases intersect is the division of 1/3 and 2/3.

Place **your thumbs** and fingers at the beginning and end of the crease you want to form. Fold the paper behind you and squeeze the fold in. This, like a mountain, elevates the fold. Smooth out any creases that have formed.
