How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Trim your cardstock to two pieces, measuring 4.5" x 9." Align one piece of cardstock horizontally on the scoring board and start scoring vertical lines every ½ inch.

Step 2

Align the cardstock so that the top lefthand corner lines up with the bottom 2-inch mark. Score this line, and continue to score parallel lines every inch. Flip the cardstock 180 degrees and repeat.

Step 3

Fold all of the scored lines (vertical and diagonal) to one side.

Step 4

At the ½-inch mark from one edge, pinch all of the vertical lines inward so that the diagonal lines fold outward. (Tip: This may take some patience, be sure to use both hands to hold the cardstock while folding!)

Step 5

Repeat steps 1-4 with the second piece of cardstock; attach the two pieces with double-sided tape.
