could you do this with index cards?

Yes, but it would be VERY hard to fold in the flaps to the body, and it come out VERY small.

OK, thanks! People did this in my grade and I think they might have used index cards. (I wouldn't know becuase I never made one and they got banned from my grade. My dean even went room to room at took them himself!)
