Cover Folding Instructions:  

You will need one 12 x 12 piece of card stock for the base.  You will score at 5.75" and 6.25".  Rotate paper once and score at 8.5".  Fold at 8.5 and use a strong adhesive such as 1/4" redline tape at the ends and in the center of the two original scores.  Now fold at the two scores and you have your cover!  Cut two slits about 1/2 apart on the center 1/2" fold for a pen.  Grab your favorite B&T duo and cut and cover as desired!  Be sure to adhere the ribbon tie on before you mount the paper for best results.  I recommend the red line tape for this as well.
