    Step 2:

    1. Measure 1 ¼" down from the top of the paper and fold the paper forward to create a small flap.
    2. Measure 4" up from the bottom of the paper and fold the paper back to create a large flap.
    3. Place the paper down with the large flap towards the table. Measure 2 ½" in from the left side and fold the paper towards the center to make a crease.
    4. Measure 2 ½" in from the right side and fold the paper towards the center to make another crease.

    1. Open the side folds and turn the paper back over so the large flap is now facing front. Adhere the gold washi tape across the top edge of the large bottom flap and across the top fold of the paper. Snip with scissors to trim edges.
