Constructing the Terdragon through Paper Folds

In this illustration imagine holding the sheet in front of you and folding the bottom gray third (A) up towards you and the top blue third (D) away from you. Now grab the bottom (B/D) and again fold towards you while folding the top (A/C) away from you. Continue this method of folding as long as desired. Open the sheet and unfold it so that all folds make an angle of 60°
