  • Draw 6 rectangles of 10.5 cm x 17 cm in a red paper. The strip should be at least 63cm x 1cm. It must be folded to resemble an accordion.
  • Reproduce the same pattern n° 2 on the fold’s top.
  • Cut the edges of the 6 layers. Remove using a cutter the rectangle that is between the 2 feet and unfold thereafter.
