This model is cuter when using smaller square paper. For this demonstration, I used a 6 x 6 inches paper.

Requirements:

Part 2

1. Take your paper pentagon, color facing up. For demonstration purposes I have drawn dashed lines to point out particular creases. 

First is to remember these dashed lines in black. Refold these creases. This is for the mountain fold.

Also refold the dashed lines in light blue. These folds will be used for the valley fold.

Your complete refold should look something like the one below. Notice the mountain and valley folds.
