8.5" by 11" sheet of paper
Scissors (not pictured)
This project will consist of many different folds and such. Not that hard, though.
Well, let's get to work!
Step 1: Step 1: Downwards/mountain fold
Sorry for my super-detailed description of the fold. I just wanted to be sure that you understood the fold. Please don't feel insulted.
Step 3: Mountain fold crease
Simplicity is bliss.
This is what it should look like after creasing.
Step 4: Cut
Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT cut along the edge of the paper that is open. Cut on the CLOSED part of the paper.
Yea, I know, that sounds confusing. Just look at the picture for a reference.
Step 5: Unfold
After unfolding, there should be a cut in the middle of the paper. If there isn't a cut in the middle, then you need to restart, and on step 4, cut on the other side of the paper.
Note: You can't see it, but there is a cut in the middle of the paper. Sorry :\
Step 6: Left-to-right fold
You could also turn the paper sideways, like the second picture.
