Step Three: Mark a small dot on the back side of the paper at the 5" mark. This will be the pivot point for scoring, and all triangles will meet at this spot.

Step Four: Use the Special Treat Embossing Board to score the triangles that will make the treat holder. Match up a long side of the triangle along the scored line, and line up the apex of the triangle with the dot.

Step Five: Use the scoring tool to hold the paper on the board and at the apex and pivot the paper to line up the next triangle to connect to the first. Continue this method until four triangles are scored.
