Take your paper and cut out a rectangle, size: 25cm x 15 cm. Draw a grid: two horizontal lines: 3,5cm from bottom and top, vertical lines: 1 cm from left hand side, then every 4 cm. After that, use your bone folder and score every line. Take a scissor and cut out the two small rectangles at the left hand side on the top and bottom.

Take your linocut tool and your rubber or carving stamp block. Use a pencil and draw your motif onto the block, take your linocut tool and cut it out! Be careful > work away from your body and take care of your fingers! Once you are satisfied, turn around the paper and STAMP!

Once the ink is dry, turn the paper around and fold every line to the inside. Then use your glue and bring your box together (put a small line of glue on the 1 cm area and stick left and right side together).
