Let’s start with the color paper/sheet. Take a ruler and mark 9.5cm markings on the sheet. Make 3 such 9.5 cm markings and draw the lines using ruler and pencil. Cut all the three portions using scissors. Now, take one portion, fold it from the center. Open it and again make 2 folds form the paper. Open it again and make 3 portions. Similarly, make multiple folds form this paper. Now this paper is ready for an accordion style fold. Thus, fold the paper back and forth in thin strips just like an accordion.
