Well, I had a couple failed attempts before getting my measurements right. But since I have them now, i figured I'd share how to make tiles for the top and bottom of a square one. Those sides can be hard get all the angles right, but here you go.

First, cut a square that measure 4.5cm x 4.5cm. Then make marks along each edge that measure 1.7cm from the corners. There should be 8 marks in total. Next connect opposite marks and form "X" cuts. DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE PLASTIC. If you cut all the way through the plastic you wont be able to make your other cuts. After you've made all your scoring cuts, then you can cut all the way through, or fold the plastic so it breaks (if your material does that). The other sides are easy, just take good measurements.

Oh, also. On your edge pieces you'll have to de-tip them alittle bit to make them fit better.
