Step 1:
Paper creases. Fold five modular pieces. (Hey, that rhymed!)
Step 2:
Fold square in half as illustrated with colored side out and spine facing up. Fold darkened crease inward to look like the illustration in step 3.
Step 3:
Fold darkened crease inward to look like the illustration in step 4.
Step 4:
One modular unit created.
Step 5:
Attach modular units together by slipping long pointed ends into pockets of neighboring units as illustrated. Use a little dab of rubber cement or tacky glue if you want to permanently anchor the pieces together. Rubber cement works best as a modular anchor as it is less likely to create warping and curling.
Step 6:
Finished umbrella mat. Use hot glue or tacky glue if you want to permanently anchor the umbrella mat to the paper doll.
