Do this marking on the other folded side, making an angle of 90 degrees with the previously marked side, with the same pattern. Remember, mark only on the folded sides, not the open ones like the above image.
Now, the next step needed a bit of precision. Grab a pencil and draw a curve from the first mark of the folded side towards the first mark of the second folded side, but don’t join the marks fully.
You need to leave a space around one cm between the line and the second mark. Scribble your pencil with light pressure.
Continue the pattern and, do this till the last marked point.

Start cutting the smallest curved line first, from the single folded side. Cut the line carefully as you don’t need to cut until the end of the opposite mark. Leave about a cm portion uncut.
Here’s the important part… After cutting the smallest line, start the next one, but… but… but… cut the next line from the other side which has two folds.
And follow the earlier pattern…means leave a cm portion uncut at the end. You can follow the above image or follow my video tutorial.
In a similar vice versa pattern, cut all the drawn lines of the paper. In the end, you will get some scrape paper cuttings on your table and, your ‘on the way decor’ will be in your hands.

Keep your finger at the center of the paper and pull the thread upwards slowly. This will cause a knot there at the center.
In the end, hold the thread and lift this cutout up, and your hanging is ready. Stretch its edges lightly with fingers to enhance its cuts and curves.
