Use any design software to create an 8.5" x 11" document. Prepare your document for the folds which are required in the final step. This might mean making guides in Illustrator or experimenting with spacing in Word.
Make a printout of your nameplate and fold it into the triangular shape shown in the example photos. You might need to make several print-outs in order to ensure proper registration. Set the nameplate on your desk. Please bring it back with you next class session.
