    You start with a square, you cut a piece out, and you stick it on the opposite side. Rinse and repeat. They'll fit together.

    A quick google search yielded the same thing, but with pictures!

    thanks..it says at least 10 repetitions, does that mean cutting it out and sticking on the opposite side 10x or just at least 10 of those figures on a piece of paper

    I think they mean you need at least ten of the shapes on the piece of paper.
