 On the second page, fold the bottom corner in to meet the spine, making a triangle.

Then fold the top corner in to meet the spine. Flip that page over.

Continue to alternate pages one & two. When you are finished folding all of the pages, decide where the front will be to determine the position of your hanger. Glue the hanger inside the top then glue the first and last pages together.
