Step-by-Step Guide:

5. Fold the bottom edge of the paper up to meet the top edge, creating a smaller triangle.
6. Fold the two bottom corners of the triangle up again, creating two small flaps.
7. Open up the flaps and fold them outward, creating the sides of the boat.
8. Fold the top corners of the triangle down, tucking them under the sides of the boat.
