Divide each side into 18 ths and cut off one strip on two edges.
Dividing into 18ths is done by dividing into 3rds, then each 3rd into 3rds again and then dividing those 9ths in half.

Crossing diagonals! Precrease the top and right edges into fourths, and make a crease from the bottom left corner to the first fourth up the right side.
In the same way, make a crease from the bottom right corner to the fourth on the top closest to the right side.
The intersection of these diagonals will be (16,4).
