TL;DR Summary

1. Fold in half the long way

2. Fold in half the short way

3. Unfold paper, grasping the left side horizontal crease, bend the paper as shown by making the left crease flush with the bottom vertical crease and crease along the -45 degree bend (not shown)

4. This is the visualization for the plane
2x+2y+z=6, made by drawing traces of the given surface in the coordinate-planes. For example, in the xy-plane set z=0 to get 2x+2y=6.
