Learn how to fold a square paper in thirds without a ruler.This is the simplest divide method I've found so far. It takes only four steps and leaves only two creases on the paper. But this method is only suitable for square paper.

  1. Make a crease by folding a square sheet of paper in half.
  2. Fold the bottom-left corner to meet the center point of the right edge.
  3. The location where the left edge of the paper overlays with the top edge of the paper is the division of 1/3 and 2/3. Mark this location with a pencil or another pinch.
  4. Fold the section that is 2/3 wide in half to get 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 division.
