The is no Challenge text, only a picture with some math formula.

*3) d) formula should be replaced by (7.5, 4.5) -> (4.5, 4.5) F


1) 5x8
a) (0,4) -> (2,4) F
b) (4,8) -> (4,6) F
c) (4,0) -> (4,2) F
2) 8x5
a) (4,0) -> (4,2) F
b) (0,4) -> (2,4) F
c) (8,4) -> (6,4) F
3) 8x8
a) (4,8) -> (4,6) B
b) (8,3.5) -> (7, 3.5) F
c) (0,3.5) -> (1,3.5) F
d) (7.5,4.5) -> (4.5,4.5) F
e) (0.5,3.5) -> (3.5, 3.5) F
f) (4,0) -> (4,2) B

These are folding instructions to make an origami. The Challenge name, Gaff, is a clue as it is also a Blade Runner character known to make some origami (http://bladerunner.wikia.com/wiki/Gaff)

The size of the paper sheet is the first number, for example 8×8

a) Fold as shown to superimpose the 2 blue dots backward (B instruction)
fold1

b-c) Fold as shown to superimpose the blue dots forward (F instruction)
fold2

d-e) Fold as shown to superimpose the blue dots forward (F instruction)
fold3

f) Fold as shown to superimpose the 2 blue dots backward (B instruction)
fold4

And you will get the letter T :
fold_final

With instructions 1 & 2, you will get the letters C & U

You finally get the word CUT

Making this challenge, you’ve folded PAPER
