    By the way ... here you are able to see the measurements I used.

    Here I have forgotten to take a picture of the step before.

    But it is also very simple to explain. You draw a ATC Card on a normal paper and on a tracing paper, too.

    Then you cut it into a "T", but please make sure that the T is a bit wider than the hole you cutted before.

    Glue both parts together at the lower part of the "T".
