You can either make your own or download the template at Zine Template You can also do this on a blank piece of paper to see how it will turn out yourself before writing everything up.

Once you have that take your piece of paper and fold it in half

I'm sorry, I don't have openoffice to test or make you a template, however you can use the link below to pocketmod, (didn't know the site existed) Or you can just create a full page table, 4 rows, 2 columns, and then each box needs to have the text rotated either right or left
Yeah I found it easier to use the PDFtoPocketmod app instead it takes an 8 page PDF and makes into a pocketmod/minizine :) Makes the layout and creation of each page allot easier. but your template has more of DIY feel to it though.

That's really simple.. and a lot more useful than those birthday card foldings. Nice!

Hehe! Sometimes the best things are simple, yet effective. Nice DIY!
Cool! Liked the video. I would invest in a little nicer mic if you continue to make videos. Other than that great!
