Begin by measuring out and cutting (3 ea.) 7″ squares from each cookie sheet.

Use a ruler to measure them and mark the cookie sheet by pressing a knitting needle along the ruler, then simply cut them out with scissors.  Take the ruler and score 1/4″ from all four sides of your square using the knitting needle.
