Step 1: Gather the Following Materials:

  • 2 pieces of paper [Same color] (Any size, both sizes have to be the same)
  • A pair of scissors

Step 2: Fold the Paper in Half Widthwise.

Step 3: Fold Same Paper in Half Again in the Same Direction

Step 4: Fold the Paper the Other Way This Time(look at the Crease)

Step 5: Fold the Paper the Same Way You Did the Previous Step

Step 6: Unfold It and You'll End Up With 16 Squares

Fold back widthwise half like you did on the second step. Then cut the CLOSED end of horizontally on the creases to a length of 1 square. It should end up like the 2nd picture.

Step 7: With Your Other Sheet of Paper Fold It in Half Widthwise

Step 8: Fold in Half Again in the Same Way and Unfold You Should Have 4 Sections

Step 9: Cut Two of the Sections Out on the Crease

Step 10: Slip the Pieces of Paper Alternating in the Paper Cuts

A.K.A slip one paper so that on one square its showing on the other its not and on one square its showing on the other its not. The next slip should be in the same cut but next to it. do the same pattern except so that on one square its not showing on the other it is and on one square its not showing on the other it is.

Step 11: How to Use It:

Push both sides together so that a sort of flap shows up. put your finger in the flap and pull apart and there is a new section that can't be seen from the outside. If you flip it and do the same thing there is also a whole new section again not visible from the outside or the other secret section.

Step 12: This Is an Example. There Are No Tricks .

    i made this for a school project it is really neat but i am still trying to figure out on how to get the (secret flaps) to fold onto the big piece of paper

    In the holes of the big paper make it so that the thin slips are alternating so that when you are inserting it you can see it on the first row then you can't on the second row and you can on the third row and so on.
