I folded a few bellows a while back -- straight ones are simple. All you do is take a rectangle of paper (or leather, rubber, or whatever) sufficient to make the box section. Remember it has 8 sides...not 4.
Then start drawing lines, and 45 degree diagonals between the large sides. That's the trick. Then just alternately fold each pleat, and use the diagonals to connect them. Simple, once you've laid out the pattern.
Check the photography sites. I learned to do it by reading a photography magazine a LONG time ago, either Shutterbug or Popular Photography. It was a sub-article in a "build your own view camera" article.
