HOW-TO

  1. Using the bone folder, fold the paper into thirds, making a valley fold on one side and a mountain fold on the other. Fold the resulting square in half diagonally, then unfold back to a rectangle.
  2. Fold each of the three “panels” in half diagonally from the top and bottom; unfold.
  3. Pinch the left panel into a squash fold to form a triangle shape. Repeat with remaining two panels; tie up with twine.

THE DETAILS

11-by-17-inch matte paper in Green Tea ($13 for 50 sheets paperpresentation.com), Londonderry thread (S826, $2.75, johnnealbooks.com).
