Is it the one where you take a long thing piece of paper - or glue two
strips together (can be two colors)...

Fold the paper over itself at the center - the resulting folded edge will be
45 degrees (the part of the strip that is doubled will be an isosceles
triangle...

as I look at my example:
Paper was vertical on the table
Take the top and fold over at the middle so that you have a 45 degree fold
and the top part is now perpendicular to the bottom...
Fold the bottom up an over the center fold... fold will be flush to the edge
of the horizontal extension...

next fold will be over the top - edge flush with fold...
continue to the end...
