Hot dog fold RE: book making ideas

Hot dog fold is folding the paper in half so it looks like a hot dog (If it
is an 8 1/2 x 11 size sheet of paper you fold the width so it is still 11"
long) A hamburger fold is the opposite (you fold the paper so that it is
still 8 1/2 " wide) hope that makes since.

Where is the picture? You lost me here:

Does this mean the hotdog fold? I'm supposed to break into the center of
the paper and cut the hotdog fold from the first crease to the last crease?

>> Then pull the two center pieces apart so it all looks like a
> diamond. Flatten it out and then fold one side over.
> Voila, you have a multipage book with NO gluing!

Um....DANG I hate being a visual learner sometimes..............
