 section 8:

separate FRONT 5 pages of section, then wrap remainder. place cutting mat between loose pages and wrapped section. use paper piercer or tip of scissors to make hole at center. then cut an “x” at the center of the page to within 1 ¼” of all 4 corners. (a) then fold back all 4 corners (b). cut off corner near gutter. (c) fold points of corners back towards center (d). punch small hole through all layers (e) then for easier access to tag, punch half moon at center just behind top point using 1” circle punch.  wrap top on either side of half moon and wrap side.  glue down points and insert brads. then glue pocket down to FRONT of section 8 along sides – narrow amount along outer edges – and bottom ONLY! you are making a pocket that opens at the top. DO NOT glue too close to opening at sides! tag will need to slide in along sides so that it does not pop out of opening at center.
