Grab the tip of the corner you just folded, and gently wrap it back and around the body of the paper, following the curvature of the folded shape.

Take the corner you just wrapped and fold it towards the center of the paper, following the guidance provided in the reference image.

Carefully fold the corner into the pocket that has been created by the previous folds. Make sure it is snugly tucked in and press the fold firmly.
