    I have tried numberous times to day to follow these directions and make this item.  I REALLY want to do this but somewhere between your Word program directions and mine version of Word, something is lost in the translation.  Please tell me how or where to get better information.  I am able to follow the video on how to fold and cut this book, but the "set up directions...--Please help.
