Here I’ll show you how to make a bell-shaped flower. We’ll need to start with the frog base. If you already know the frog base, make one and then skip ahead, but if you don’t know it, watch this clip. Here I’ll show you how to make what's called the frog base. To start, we’ll need to make what's called the square base. Fold the paper in half to make a rectangle, crease and then unfold. Fold the paper in half from the other direction to make another rectangle, crease and then unfold. Now fold it in half to make a triangle, crease and then unfold. Now we’ll fold in half to make a triangle again but this time reverse the paper, crease and then unfold. As you unfold, you might need to pop the paper out of it. Pinch in these two sides here and squash down the other sides. And now you’ve got a square with four flaps, two flaps on top and two flaps on the bottom. This is the square base.
From the square base, take on flap on top and pivot from the close end to fold in towards the middle, crease and unfold then reverse the fold. Stand the flap up and open it from the bottom. Slide your finger in to pop up the sides and then squash it flat. Now fold that of the way and repeat the process on the three other flaps. When you're done, you should have this kite like shape with alternating white bottoms and solid bottoms. From the sides with the white bottom, pivot from the white end and fold in towards the middle. Do this on both sides. Now, unfold, lift up the middle, invert the sides by pushing them in. now we have this flap edge flat. Use your thumbs to walk the sides up so that it forms a point. Crease by pinching. Then lay the pointed flap down. You’ll need to repeat this process on the three other sides. And finally, there is your frog base.
From our frog base, its pretty easy to make this flower. You're going to gently open up this end with the long points here. On the side, find this deep valley like gap here. You're going to push that together then push down the long point and tuck it in like so. Now, repeat the process three more times. And there is your flower, four petals and bell or cone-shaped.
