Step 1: Step One

Picture of Step One
Decide which edge of your paper is the bottom.  The back 6 inches of this edge will be hidden, so you probably want any part with tags, bar codes, etc. to be the bottom.

Fold your paper in half vertically, so if the bottom is to you, you have a 12 inch tall by 6 inch wide rectangle.

Unfold before going to next step.

Step 2: Step Two

Measure up 3 inches from the bottom of your paper.  Mark in several places.

Step 3: Step Three

Place your ruler so it lines up with the 3 inch marks you made.  Use the edge of your scissors to score a straight line all the way across your paper.

Step 4: Step Four

Fold on the line you just scored.  It should be pretty easy to do.

Unfold before going to next step.

Step 5: Step Five

Refold your paper on the first fold.

Use your scissors to cut a long narrow triangle shape on the fold side of the bottom.  The triangle should run from the bottom to the newest fold line.

Unfold paper.  It should now look similar to the second photo.
