Print the templates, along with two images of your choice, on 21.5 x!28cm (8½ x 11") paper. Make sure to size the images so that they fill the entire page.
Place the diagonal-line template on top of one of your photos and the vertical-line template on the other. The white template borders should be on the top and left sides. Secure the templates to the photos using binder clips.
Following the lines of the diagonal template, cut through both the template and the image, making sure to stop cutting where the lines of the template end.
When you’ve finished cutting, remove the binder clips and set the image aside.
Next, cut along the lines of your vertically-cut template and photo.
