  4. Step 4

    Score on the diagonal from the bottom of one upper score line to the tops of the two below it.

  5. Angle the cardstock back and forth as you score, creating triangles along the way.

    Stamp cardstock if desired prior to folding.

    Cut away excess pieces that are not needed, as shown in the diagram.
