Here is one way to do that.
1) Take the upper-middle horizontal matchstick and move it to the middle-right. This gives you 4 horizontal matchsticks in the middle.
2) Take the bottom-right horizontal matchstick and move it to the right (parallel to the first matchstick).
3) Take the bottom-left vertical matchstick and move it all the way to the right. This should create a new square on the bottom right which is diagonal to the top-right square.
4) Take the bottom-left horizontal matchstick and move it to the right one square and this should create a new square which is diagonal to the top-left square (also diagonal to the top right).
