Take one 4x12 section and from the left score at 4.5 and 10

The front love paper is 3.75x4.25 cut and adhear using a tape runner

The inside solid light pink is 3.75x5.25 cut and adhear using a tape runner

Small rectangle piece of hot pink 2x2.75 cut

Small printed rectangle 1.75x2.5 cut

Using foam tape near the edges adhear the two small rectangles together
