  2. Fold the paper in half, and accordion pleat from the folded edge for a total of nine folds generating five pleats (Figure A).
  3. Die-cut several pennants from the Sock Monkey die using assorted colors of cardstock or construction paper for the poles and pennants.
  4. Add stickers for pennant numbers.
  5. Place adhesive on the front bottom of the pennant, and stagger the pennants in the valley folds (Main Photo).
  6. Write a message on the inside of the card with a white pen.
