  2. Turn the figure a quarter turn and fold the top and bottom in the center following the dotted lines.
  3. Unfold.
  4. Fold the sides of the figure into the center following the dotted lines.
  5. Unfold.
  6. Unfold both sides.
  7. You get this figure.
  8. Raise the top and bottom of the figure vertically by folding at the marked creases.
  9. Bring up the sides, taking care to use the folds marked previously.
  10. Fold the top of the sides toward the inside of the box.
