- Take the square corners prepared and bend it diagonally, so that a triangle.
- Expand preform triangular base downwards.
- Use the ruler and pencil, retreating each time at a distance of about 0,5-1 See traceable line parallel to the sides, running in the direction from the base to the apex of the triangle. Lines may not reach the top and in contact with each other.
- By incised lines do notches and expand the square.
- We turn the workpiece so, To get a diamond.
- Then we take the right and left inner corners of the rhombus and fastening them with a staple or adhesive tape stationery.
- Overturn the product on the other side and proceed to the bonding of diamond over the next queue.
- Repeat the above described point until, until it is sealed with the last appearance diamond. As a result of this action and the results in the required initial billet.
- Once all of the crafts they will be ready to be connected with each other. To this end, the crimping of the edge of the first the first three elements, and then the remaining. After that the two parts are joined together obtained, so as to have something like a flower, and fasten them midway stapler, and a pitch at points of contact with each other.
