Mine were two inches from the binding. Then cut along the lines. The cutting doesn't need to be well done because you won't see the cuts at the end.

Seeing the finished product made me think that you might even use those folders as actual folders, say, to keep paperwork for three connected subjects, say, three cars or something. Great idea, thanks for sharing!

Also, you might try to remove the ring/clamp mechanism to use them in other projects...
