  • Score on 12: side, every 3 "
  • Turn paper to 9" side, score @4-1/2".
  • Cut paper in the center 4-1/2" line as shown below

Fold paper as shown to create pockets for the tags. Position sticky tape to finish pockets (see above photo where to apply sticky tape - it should be the inside.The photo shows ONLY where the tape should go)......make sense?
