You can make two equal sized prints and draw a line along the width of one at the top and the other at the bottom.

Cut both into equal width strips (say 1/8 inch).

Alternately lay the strips face down The lines should alternate when you are looking at the back. Keep them in order.

Put a strip of tape across the back turn them over and lift them up in a zig zag. The edges should look like

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Seen from the left you will see one picture and from the right the other.

Experiment with widths for different picture sizes.

Did basically the same thing as a kid many years ago.  Cut two pictures in equal sized strips, alternately glue them down on another sheet of paper, then fan-fold them as described above.
