Origami Camera Step 2: Now fold each of the four (4) corners to the center of the model. This is called a "blintz".
Origami Camera Step 3: Next turn the piece over, and fold the corners to the center again, i.e. make another blintz.
Origami Camera Step 4: Turn the piece over again, and fold one more blintz.
Origami Camera Step 5: Now turn the piece over again (but no blintz this time!). Unfold and flatten the top and bottom flaps, as shown in the sequence of the next four (4) photos.
Origami Camera Step 6: Now take hold of the corners A and B, and gently unfold and refold the piece as shown in the next seven (7) photos:
