Diamonds and X's Tessellaton

Here's another square grid design that uses the same field of 4 x 4 squares as the previous post.

This time  I folded over the corners and then  opened them up and squashed them flat.

A nice pattern.

It's, no doubt, been done before. Not groundbreaking, by any means.

Simple concept.

Interesting result.

A little tedious to execute. Getting those little corners to open up and spread out isn't always easy.

There are always one or two corners that just don't want to cooperate.

With most tesses, you're working the paper so much that something thicker and heartier is a must. In this case though, I think that a thinner paper would've worked best.

To me, it comes out looking like a field of gift wrapped presents. What does it look like to you?
