Once I  have the cartilage scored all the way across, I'll take my thumbnail and start peeling the cartilage away from the skin.  I take my time and go carefully so I don't tear the skin.
I take a sharp knife or scalpel and CAREFULLY score the cartilage all the way across the ear, being careful not to cut through the skin on the other side. I will make shallow cuts to begin with, as I can always go back and cut a little deeper if I need to.
I'll take the ear and fold it in half approximately in the middle of the ear.
