First, I cut up an old frozen pizza box into a 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 rectangles. Then I cut out the inside of one of them. Then I cut fabric rectangles, slightly larger.
Then I folded, ironed, and used Tacky Glue to cover the cardboard w/ the fabric.
Then I stitched (close to the edged) along the inside rectangle and the top edge of the rectangle.
Then I placed the rectangles together and stitched along each side and along the bottom ( I left the top open so we could insert stuff later).
Optional: Cut out some rectangles out of page protectors.
