The two outer edges of the blanks should be slightly rounded. One of the details in height is divided into 2 equal parts. From the one with the right angles, cut off a strip 5 mm wide.

Three cardboard blanks of different widths are to be glued with the "Moment" glue onto the packaging plastic, this will give them strength. After a time, after the glue has dried, the edges of the cardboard relieve the protruding transparent surpluses of plastic.

On the underside of the ironed fabric, attach parts of the frame, placing them plastic coated on top, and rounded edges in different directions. In this case, from the first part to retreat 2 centimeters, and from the second( narrow) - 0.5 centimeters. In order to avoid the displacement of the parts, the guides should be drawn on the fabric using the side of the first carton blank as a guide.

On the back side of the folded cover, mark the place to fasten the clip, taking into account that it should be centered between the top and bottom edge of the cover and 2.5 centimeters from the outer edge of the cover. Duplicate the chain of holes near the outer perimeter, glue the piece along the same line, but on the inside.

Glue the part and the stylus to duplicate the holes, piercing and the outer part of the back of the case. After sew the clip.
