Measure across 10 cm score a line from the top to the bottom of the page, Repeat twice dividing the page into 3 equal columns.Turn the page so the scored line run across and repeat, creating 9 equal squares of 10cm x 10cm.

Step 2) Then cut up on the first score line 2 squares (20cm),

Then cut down the second score line 2 squares (20cm)

Step 3) Turn the paper so patterned side down then fold 1st square down towards you then fold the 2nd square down away from you then fold the 3rd square across to the right then continue following the score lines till you have a concertina booklet of 10cm squares.
