Divide Paper into Thirds: Method 2

There are many ways to divide a sheet of paper into thirds, some methods are easier than others. The method shown here is:
- fairly easy,
- but will leave 3 crease marks.

Divide Paper into Thirds: Method 2

  • Fold and unfold a sheet of paper left to right.

  • Fold the top-left corner to meet the central vertical crease; at the same time, allow this new fold to intersect with the top-right corner. Note where the crease line meets the left edge of the paper.

  • Fold the top-right corner to meet the left edge of the paper where the crease intersects (join the two dots).

  • The location where the paper folds over along the top-edge of the paper is the division of 1/3 and 2/3. Mark this location with a pencil or a notch fold.

  • Fold the section that is 2/3 wide in half to get 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 division
