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.
