*Note: Step 3 can be done two ways, and how you cut it will determine the length of your insert/tag. On my sample the bottom tab is on the right hand side. This means that when you adhere both 1/2″ tabs inside, they cross over each other, reducing the inside depth by approx. 1/2″. If you cut away the right hand side, keeping the bottom tab on the left side they don’t cross over and the insert should be cut at 3.75″ x 4 7/8″
