The wing tips are similarly made from folded over 3mm depron. I previously built and flew a prototype where I cut the wing and wing tips from a single piece of folded foam but found aligning the wing tips correctly difficult. So for this build I'm making the wing and wing tips separately.
Unlike the main wing, the wing tips don't need to be bent. We go straight to folding. To make the leading edge a bit more rounded I placed a pencil along the fold line while folding.

Use a pencil to fold a thicker, rounder leading edge.
Wing tip folded.
The airfoil for the wing tip. It should be symmetrical.
