The first step is to connect the edges across from each other . It should look like two triangles on each half. Repeat the same process again so that it looks like an x on your paper. Make sure that you properly align the edges or else your crane won't fold as well. Make sure it is as perfect as possible.

The next step is to turn the paper over and fold it in half. You should see a line down the middle of the half and a slash on the "squares". Lift up the paper so that the right corner square is folded onto itself to become a triangle. Then you repeat the step for the other square.

You should now see a small square with one end open and the other end closed. One half of the square should be folded over to the middle. Then you repeat the step on the other half.Once both halves are folded in it should look like the superman symbol. If it doesn't than you might've folded the other side of the square with the half you folded.
