It took me FOREVER (hours and hours) to create a template for the sections.  I finally threw out my tutorial on cutting each individual section and created a template that can be used over and over. The easiest way to create section templates is to following the tutorial below.  Cut your template out of heavy cardstock or window sheet.  Cut your pattern paper to 3 1/4" and place template on top and trace diagonal line and cut.

The FREE tutorial can be found HERE.

Please note, if you use a edge border punch, you will have to trim to fit each section.
