Pleats all done. Don't they look nice.

Please store the "Pleater Board" under a heavy book to keep it in "shape" until next use.

    I like the idea and I want to make one – I need one, indeed. But I think some parts of this tutorial are a bit difficult to understand for those of us who are not North Americans (and we are probably the majority here because Burda is German with international distribution). Could you explain a bit more? What is an X-acto knife exactly? Is it a knife that doesn’t cut? What is a “ghost line”? That is not clear to me at all. What kind of glue is Martha Stewart (she is a US personality, I believe, but has no impact on the rest of the world so we don’t get her products here). E.g. is it water-based or super-glue or something else? I really do want to know because I think making your own pleater is much better than buying one (you can make different sizes, for one thing). Thank you for all the effort of making it and the clear photos.

    Great directions. I’m going to make one today so that I don’t forget how to do it. Thanks!!

    This looks like a great idea so that all the pleats will be the same and fast. thank you I will have to try this.

    This is awesome! I had to ditch my pleater from Clotilde, so I will be making her replacement like this.

    What is the longest that you can make the pleater? And have you ever made something like a sunburst pleat pleater?
