- With the pocket open, place a strip of double sided tape across the point of the flap, on the front. Place another strip across directly above this one and trim both to the shape of the flap.
- Place the made up panel onto the flap, line up the top edge of the panel with the top of the tape strips and make sure the panel is level and central to the rest of the wallet.
- Place a strip of double sided tape across the front of the flap approximately 8mm from the fold, make sure it is straight, and trim neatly to the edges of the flap.
