Step 4
Examine your sheet of AG1076 Shell paper. You'll see that each side has shells that extend off the paper. Cut out seven of these half shells, then set aside the remainder of sheet for the right page. Arrange shells in the center of the page in an oval, placing the complete edge of one shell over the cut-off edge of the one before it. Adhere these shells in place after you arrange them. Try not to adhere the complete edges of the shells so that when the page is done, you can gently lift the complete edge of each shell to lift it off the page. This gives the page extra dimension.

Now, you'll need to score diagonally from the point where the top horizontal score mark intersects the outside fold to the top corner of the paper you've just folded over.

[After AG made a phone call to the designer, I decided I would need to make a change. Score a diagonal line from each outside fold line and top flap fold line, to the top inside corner of the left flap.  Do the same on the right side.  Fold over and adhere scored corner to flap on each side.  If I could do it over, I would have just folded the flap over the back of the card a forgot about tucking it in.  Below are the designers directions.  If you can make them work, you are a better crafter than me.  Let me know if you are able to make the designers directions work. We are in this together.]

Now, you'll need to score diagonally from the point where the top horizontal score mark intersects the outside fold to the top corner of the paper you've just folded over.

When you fold this down, it makes the flap tapered. When you fold this down, it makes the flap tapered. When you fold this down, it makes the flap tapered.
