  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather your supplies. Markers are optional.

    Step 2

    Tilt your paper horizontally and (if you'd like) colour it. Make it bright or however you'd like it.

    Step 3

    I just scribbled but whatever. You can do the other side if you'd like, but I didn't.

    Step 4

    If you only drew on one side, flip to the other page. If you drew on both sides, just skip this step.

    Step 5

    Take the bottom part and fold it about 1/3 up the page. Crease it.

    Step 6

    Repeat for the other side.

    Step 7

    Take one side and fold it over about 1/4 of the page.

    Step 8

    Repeat on other side.

    Step 9

    Put three staples on the bottom side like this. DO NOT repeat on top side.

    Step 10

    Fold it in half like this.

    Step 11

    Put a small piece of tape on just like this.

    Step 12

    I'm going to use this Pokémon card to demonstrate how it works.

    Step 13

    If done correctly, the top should open up like this.

    Step 14

    It should tape closed like this.

    Step 15

    Thanks for reading this guide! I dedicate this to my grandmother, who sadly passed away this morning due to lung cancer. 😭 She will be missed.
