Fold a large (=larger than the shorts) piece of paper in half and pin it (using push pins) onto your cork-board with the fold along one edge of the board. Lay the natural fold of your boy-shorts along the top. Be meticulous and precise. Use fine pins to gently pin the shorts onto the paper (indicated in Figure 3 by two orange arrows).
