Lisa, look at the 4th picture down on page 98. Take the triangles on the right side of the first pair and turn them around to become so they become the left side of the second pair. Take the triangles on the left side of the second pair and turn them around to become the right side of the first pair. By doing this you will have the main color in opposite corners diagonally so it looks like you have created an x. Hope this helps.
