Steps 1 and 2

Cut a 20 x 20 cm square card and score at 10cm (the middle)

Turn the cardstock 90 degrees and score at 10cm mark but only score half way (to the other score line)

Cut a tiny slither out of the card (about 2 mm) as shown in the diagram

Score diagonally from the outside corner in towards the middle as shown in the diagram for both sides

Please check the diagram to make sure your diagonal scores are correct

Step 3 and 4

Fold over both the diagonal scores as shown and really crease with a bone folder (what I use is a little rubber roller)

They should both look like the second diagram
