Let's get started!

Step 1: Create a square from the dark pink paper. 
Step 2: Fold your paper in half. Fold your square paper in half, aligning the edges to form a rectangle.
Step 3: Open the paper and fold it in half again, but in the opposite direction from the previous fold.
Step 4: Fold each corner towards the center.
Step 5: Turn the paper over and fold the corners inward again.
Step 6: Fold the paper in both directions to facilitate the use of the spinner later.
Step 7: Turn the paper over again. You should now see four small squares that are open at the corners. Pull these out, causing the center to fold inward slightly.
Step 8: Your spinner is almost ready! Finally, turn it into a pig.
Step 9: Cut out eyes and use the black marker. Create a snout (cut in half), ears, and cut out a tongue (cut in half).
Step 10: Once you have all the pieces, position them on your spinner. You may need to crease the eyes and snout of your paper pig to ensure a neat fit.
