  2. Lay escort card in the center of the paper and rotate card counterclockwise about 30 degrees.
  3. Using the card’s edges as a guide, fold each side around the card, starting at the left and going counterclockwise.
  4. On the final side, make a squash fold at the left-hand corner, then tuck in the fold until it’s concealed under the bottom flap.
