I wonder if it's due to my age, or a regionalism, or what... but where are you from? I've never heard of "fold hamburger style" until this moment.

It's the American way of saying "fold the short sides together". If you fold the long sides together, it's hotdog style.

Kiteman, I must admit it's a bit funny for you to be explaining this to me, as I recall you're a Brit (and I'm from the Midwestern US). That's why I asked where the author was from. Neither my wife nor I (both from Wisconsin) have ever heard of this. ;)

I made one of those in 4th grade and I couldn't remember how and I've been wanting to know how for the last 12 or so years.
