    How difficult was this project?

    Difficulty: Very Hard
    The directions are not clear, and it doesn't even work. I tried with oragami paper, printer paper, cardstock, and even tissue paper. I ended up with looking it up online. If want to consider it a great father's day card, adjust the very unclear instructions. Sorry, it just didn't work for me.
