 x refers to the height you need for whatever you like to store in the folder. Magazines, notebook or small books. Just measure the height of them then you will have the x value.

z refers to the width of the magazines.

y refers to the width you like for the folder. It's your choice. It may be related to the number of magazines you would like to store. If they are too many you will need big width. If just few magazines you will need small width and so on.

2 - After cutting the cardboard collect the pieces you cut with the glue gun as shown in the next picture.
