1. Print out the tent pattern of your choice (red or purple or yellow). Cut out the pattern.
2. Fold along all solid lines.
3. Cut along the dotted lines.
4. Open the folds. Pull in one side of the paper at the cut to form an L shape.
5. Tape the inside of the L to hold it in place. Repeat with the other side.
6. Bend in the four pointed ends. Now your tent will sit flat.
