2. Place the cardboard horizontally. Draw a small marker line at the top of the cardboard 3 1/2″ in from the edge and at the bottom of the cardboard 1 1/2″ in from the edge. Create two more marks along the side of the cardboard, 3/4″ and 1 1/2″ up from the bottom. Repeat the marks on both sides so they mirror each other.
