Open the folded newspaper from right to left and place the envelope (notary seal side down) at the center of the bottom edge of the paper. Place the force card, face down, on top of the envelope. Close the paper.

Holding the paper flat, carefully insert it in the Zip-Lock storage bag till its bottom edge is resting on the bottom of the bag. Press the bag to the dot of double-sided tape on the secret pocket. Place the bag upright on the stand.
