Can you make geometric figures that hold a particular area within a given perimeter of 12 matches

My attempt was to start at origin 0,0 and move up 1 unit (a,b) and then 1 unit up or to the right (c,d) etc ... until you enclose the required area (defined by linear spline) s.t. perimeter =12. but it doesn't really work
