Step 4: Locate images to use as your icons on the iDad card. We bought these on iStockphoto.com. You could also do a Google image search for icons — look for medium-sized images for better quality. Save the images and import them into a Word doc, reducing them to consistent size (about 1-1/2 inches x 1-1/2 inches).

Step 5: If you are going to put photos underneath your flaps, assemble them in a Word doc, the same way and the same size as the icons.

Step 6: Cut out the icons and the photos.

Step 7: Spread out some newspapers to protect your work surface. Arrange the icons on the other piece of black card stock/paper and glue them down. Let dry for a couple of minutes.
