Letter Folding Challenges

Roughly paraphrased this passage reads: 'Paper games. An octave sheet should be folded into a closed letter in the shape of a triangle (ie presumably the Triangular Letter Fold). Each person takes it in turn to make a fold. Anyone who folds the wrong way pays a forfeit. A second challenge is to fold a closed letter with eight squared fractions from an octave sheet.'

I do not know what form the second of these letters would take.
