    Tear it off carefully (you can use a ruler). As a result, we have got a triangle.

    Take your triangle and fold it in half. You have got a new smaller triangle.

    Afterwards, press it down and at the same time “open / flatten” it. Finally, your corner transforms into a square.

    Turn this thing upside down and do exactly the same with another corner. As a result, you get a square.

    To continue, you have to place your square on the table correctly. It has a square shape, and, therefore, it has 4 corners. Put it on the table so, that you could see the “free” corner, that is the corner you can open. Fold the left and right lower parts of the model as it is shown in the picture.

    Now we have to do the most complicated action. Open again those parts of your model that you folded in step 4 (we folded them earlier to create a bend line). Afterwards, pick the lower acute angle up.

    Now fold the whole model in two. It already starts to look like a parrot. You only have to make its head. First of all, you should correctly position your model on the table. Put it the way it is shown in the picture (the paws of parrot should be directed towards you).
