1st, we hole punched various pieces of coloured cards for the front of the binder, onto which we stuck our models.

We connected our models to the card with a stuff stick.
Second, we added a number of plastic sleeves into which we slipped the origami instructions we had printed out there, ready to try.
3rd, we used sticky-tape to attach a sizable envelope to the inside back side of the ring binder, in which we store our origami paper safely.
