Repeat this cut from the left and right to form two identical cuts. Lay the cardstock on the score board and score between the cut lines at 1”, 2”, 3 1/4”, 4 1/2”, 6”, 7 1/2”, 9 1/4”. Score the 1” margins at 5 1/2”. Burnish the score lines from 1” mountain, valley repeat. The 5 1.2” margin score lines are mountain fold.
