Cut two 4-inch squares from different colored paper. Also, cut a 7-inch circle. 

fold 1 square in half

Take one of the 4-inch squares. Fold the square in half.

fold again

Fold in half the other way.  Look at the square. You will see two sides with cut edges and two that have folded edges.

fold into a triangle

Hold the square so that the point with folded edges is near you and the cut edges are away from you. Fold the corner that is near your let hand over to the corner near your right hand. You will have a triangle.

One side will be a fold, one side will be the cut edges, and the other side will open but have three folded edges.

make a mark

On the side with the three folded edges measure about 1 inch from the point. 

cut from the mark to the corner

Place your scissors on your mark and cut to the point on the open edge.
