How to draw a rectangle with 3 lines?

kinda like drawing a circle with a dot in the center without lifting the pen off the paper, it involved folding over the paper.

So, draw 2 lines parallel ,the full length of the paper. Then fold paper in 1/2 lengthwise, and draw the 3rd line on the end of the paper and the ink will be on both edges, then unfold the paper. As long as the width of your lines exceed the width of 2 sheets of paper, your home free.

(wink wink, infinity is incorrect on my riddle)
