    Tape 12 papers together.

    You have created a paper.

    Fold the papers along the taped edges.

    You have folded a paper into 12 equal parts.

    LOL

    Half it, fold it 6 times, open it and then you have 12 sections.

    So'm I m9

    Look


    Repeat for 12 papers in a row. Then fold. Easy.
    That's wasting paper though; I want to do it with one sheet!

    Fold it in half, and then fold into thirds.

    One prerequisite to this is starting with paper that isn't very thick.

    Whoa, you're ambitious!
    I've wasted 3 sheets already trying to figure it out, not good. Not going to waste more paper.

    I'm intrigued too. I've heard of halves, vaguely heard of thirds, but... sixths?
    I could do eigths easily but I'll need to use 15 sheets, so 12 would save 5 extra sheets of paper. That's a lot when I could use a lot less, possibly.

    First fold it in to thirds like so, as you would fold a 3 way leaflet



    Then fold it in half and in half again to get these creases. Done.

    Don't let the paper go to waste, just use it as toilet paper afterwards, or feed it to your pets

    Or both, actually
    Yeah use it as scrap paper or let the dog rip it up lol. Dogs don't eat paper!!

    You can do it. But it's a bit of a stupid way of doing it...

    (Original post by _Xenon_)
    Fold it into 3's then fold it 4 times?

    That's not very scientific

    You need to repeat it a few times to be sure that it is 12 pieces you get
    Of course. Might end up with 11 pieces if you're not careful

    11 isn't bad but I'll be using more paper then which isn't good

    No, folding it into 6's and then halving it.

    I just did it on a piece of paper.
