1. Fold the card hot dog style (lengthwise).
2. Make a cut at the top of the folded edge about ¼ inch from the top of the card, cut towards the open end and stop ⅛ inch away from the open end.
3. Make another cut ⅛ inch below your last cut starting on the open side and stop about ⅛ inch from the folded side.
4. Continue alternating cuts (repeat steps 2 & 3) until you are about ¼ inch from the bottom of the card.
5. Make sure you end with the same cut that you started. You want a cut that starts from the folded side and extends towards the open side.
6. Lay the cut card flat.
7. Unfold the card without ripping. It should look like a 3x5 card but with a bunch of slits in it.
8. Cut the center of the strips except for the first and last strips.
9. Now unfold everything and you should be able to step through the 3x5 card.
