| This simple Jacob, Rachel and Leah origami craft is a lovely puzzle to play with when made. It has 3 images to reveal – the mystery bride and the two sisters. When the veil is over the top there really is no way to tell who is under there.
This is quite a long post as I’ve shown every single, little, step but it’s a really easy craft to do.
|To make this craft you will need a pair of scissors and the PDF printout. You will also need the ability to fold a piece of paper into halves and quarters with at least some degree of accuracy.

|Start by cutting out the large square.|
|Fold the square in half diagonally, corner to corner to make a big triangle. Open up and repeat folding the other way – we need to do this (ink on the inside, ink on the outside) with every fold.|
|Open out again and fold each corner into the middle, the folds should create more little triangles. Remember to repeat folding the other way.|
|Lets repeat the process with rectangles. Fold the fully opened square in half down the middle to form a rectangle. Rotate and repeat so the lines cross in the middle.|
|Open out again and fold one edge into the middle to form a long thin rectangle, rotate and repeat for all 4 edges.|
|Now comes the tricky bit. Each flat side needs to be folded into the center. Start by folding one side the opening up the corner to the mid point|
|fold the next side flattening the corner into a point as you go. Repeat on the remaining 2 sides.|
|When all four sides are done it will leave you with what looks like a pinwheel.|
|Open out each corner and flatten it down.|
The image of the mystery bride should appear as the corners come together.
