After I measured out my strip and marked it, I brought it over to a finger press.  This will put my bends were I need them.

To create my first bend I placed the line I marked directly under one of the fingers on the press.  Using the side levers I clamped the fingers down on my strip.  Then I pulled the lower handle up to about the degree of bend I wanted to achieve.  After the bend I am left with a V shape to start my diamond off.
