***** HOW TO MEASURE YOUR PAPER *****
• The paper used in the video (Landscape) = 15" (width) x 10" (height)
• The ratio of the paper = 3 : 2
• Corner squares = 2.5" x 2.5"
• The ratio of the squares = 1/6 of the width or 1/4 of the height
If you are using A4 paper (29.7cm x 21cm) and apply above 3 : 2 ratio, 28.5cm x 19cm (3 : 2 of 9.5cm) will be one of the easiest and largest size. The squares for this size will be 4.75cm x 4.75cm (1/6 of 28.5cm or 1/4 of 19cm)
For U.S. letter size paper (11" x 8.5" ), 10.5" x 7" with 1.75" squares will be the easiest and largest to measure.
The same rule applies to any size paper you are using. Just remember your ratios are 3 : 2 for the original paper and 1/6 of longer side (or 1/4 of shorter side) of the paper for squares.
