The paper models I have published require precision. Carving (or Scratching?) eases to make perfect folds.
A summary is shown in the image.

Step 1: Tools you need and preparations

  • A cutter
  • Crease Pattern
  • Blank sheet of paper
  • Transparent surface (eg. glass table)
  • Light source (eg. desk lamp)
  • Adhesive tape
Put the blank sheet of paper + CP (back) side by side and stick them horizontally or vertically along the edges with two pieces adhesive tape to avoid shifting. Then order the sheets on top of each other. A lamp and a transparent surface illuminates through the papers so you can easily track the lines.
