STEP 2: Cut 2 smaller rectangles. The width is the same as the first rectangle but the height must be ⅔ of the first rectangle. For example, my first rectangle was 20” width x 15” high , so my two smaller rectangles are 20“ width x 10” high. These measurements will change according to the size of your chosen frame.

STEP 3: You’re going to use the two small rectangles to make pockets for your DIY mail organize. Fold the hem. Take the part that you folded and fold it again in half. Iron them to mark the folds.
