Oak Leaf Stand for Acorn Sliceform

How to assemble the oak leaf stand

I cut the stand from orange paper and dabbed some brown and green ink on the leaves.

Create bottom triangle creases by folding each leaf up and toward the center.

Create creases at top lip of "bowl" by folding each leaf down and toward the outside.

Create creases on sides by pinching each leaf at the lip of the bowl, in the center of the leaf.

Crease tabs. Glue tabs to sides at each corner. At each corner one tab will be on the outside, and one on the inside. If you prefer, you can cut off one tab.

Balance acorn in stand.

I have it on my computer at work. The stand isn't mailable, it doesn't fold flat :(
