Assemble four recycled duckbill motifs. Gather the cutaway shapes you set aside while creating the Duckbill cover art. Reconstruct four complete duckbills by gluing them in the following order: blue duckbill on bottom, brown teardrop in the middle, and orange O on top. Use a corner punch to round the corners of the 4" x 6" (100 x 150mm) orange cards.
Adhere the artwork to the cards. Glue one duckbill on each of the orange note cards.
Erase pencil marks and assemble the gift set. Remove pencil marks and dried glue with an adhesive pick-up square. Erase in a direction from wider to thinner shapes. Tuck four A6 envelopes and four note cards inside the folder pocket. Burnish one last time, weighting with books to flatten the entire folio. When you present this gift, let your recipient know that the folio folder is frame-worthy!
