Best way to explain it is by using the photo of the un-rolled tamale with the ingredients laying in. Like rolling a burrito, fold one long end fairly tightly over the ingredients, once. now fold the bottom of the hoja upwards to form the bottom of the tamale. Then continue rolling the long end. The masa will bond well enough to the edge of the other long end.
