You should clip the interior angle carefully in this step, especially make a great radian.   Step Three: Stick all the interior pages together As the following picture shows, stick all the interior pages together with adhesive while the frame is fit perfectly for the iPad. Attention: In this step, in order to prevent the interior pages from tilting, you should make the cover stand on the table, and position the cover and the pages at a 90-degree angle.

The cheaper iPad case is finally done until the glue is dry. If you worry that the side part of the iPad may be scratched by the pages, you can use the thin flannelette to cover the interior part of the pages.
