Take each of the bottom corners and fold to the top corner as showing below.
Then fold the left and right corners down to meet the edge of the paper.
Unfold the flap you created before and make a squash fold and squash that flat and then crease it.
Fold down the top triangles of both sides.
Fold the left corner on itself so it meets the first side crease. Repeat with the right corner.
