Here is a quick example.  (you didn't have any bends or rips (corner seams)), so it was hard to tell what you are after, this might get you started)

You might have to alter your design a bit.

That is a good starting point for  me.Thanks

 

How would you cut 4 slots across by 6 slots down.Slot size would be 2mm x 4mm

 

How would you cut out the slots ?

 

Thanks

What slots?
I didn't see any in your files.

 

Project Flat Pattern and Cut Across Bend

or

Unfold, Cut, Refold.
