How to line a cake pan w/ parchment

Ok, so I was watching a YouTube video of how to line a cake pan. This task is what keeps me from actually lining the bottom of a cake pan in lieu of just oil/flouring it.

So, here goes:
1 Take a piece of parchment paper (wider the the size of the pan that you're using.
2 Fold in half.
3 Fold into a triangle (using the bottom as an edge).
4 Fold into another triangle (again, using the bottom). You will have something that looks like this:







5 Take the (almost paper airplane looking thing) over to the back side of the pan.
Place the point in the middle of the pan, and allow the rest of the paper to rest on the pan. (here's a visual)









6 cut the paper where it meets with the edge of the pan.

7 Unfold and YOU HAVE LINED THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN.
(looky-looky)
