Mensagem:  In English the "folha" that you tear out is the "check" or, in some places it's a bank draft. We make out checks. That means we take a pre-printed form and fill in the spaces with words and numbers. Then we sign the check. The phrases "make out a check" or "cut a check" are the most common. To cut a check means to issue a check using a machine. I think that goes back to when payroll checks (pagamento de salários) or income tax refund checks were done for a lot of people all at once. The machine printed and then cut the checks automatically. Someplaces it's called filling out a check; someplaces it's filling in a check. Just depends on who's talking. Please make the check out to "Smiley Face" and I'll deposit at my bank. make out the check: preencher um cheque
