    Place a spoonful of the mix onto the pastry and fold the bottom side over on a 45' angle to meet one side of the pastry strip, this should form a 2 sided triangle. Fold the 2nd side over the opposite side creating a pocket of filling in a 3 sided triangle. Repeat the folds to give 2 layers, seal the last fold by brushing the ends with a little water. Repeat the process until all of the mix is used.
