eyelets in holes (bearing in mind the front of the album is the
"front side"). Follow the directions for using the eyelet
anvil. For the ones along the edges you can also use pliers.
TIP #3: It is very likely the eyelet won't go all the way
through perfectly because of the board's thickness. This is OK. You only
need them to stop the hole from tearing. Also, make sure the holes are
big enough. Unlike fabric, the two layers of paperboard will have no
"give": If you try to force an eyelet
through, the backside bends and you've wasted an eyelet.
The remaining halves will become the
shelves. There's really only one shelf, with a vertical piece to
stabilize it. I'm calling this a shelf too to make it easier to explain.

short, one long.
On the long side, start from the 3/8" line and mark every

Measure half-way up the long way. Draw a horizontal line. Starting from
the side WITHOUT grommets, cut a slit three inches deep.
For the vertical shelf, follow the directions for the horizontal shelf,
but on step four, cut the slit starting from the side WITH grommets.
Starting with the full cover (which will form the back of the box) draw
a line 3/8" in around the entire edge.
from the 3/8" mark, measure every 1-5/8" around all four
sides. This should give you eight holes per side total (including
