  • processing a first web to define a base piece having a front cover and a back cover separated by a first fold;

    processing a second web to define a pop-up device having a pop-up panel, a front flap adjoining an end of the pop-up panel, and a rear flap adjoining an opposite end of the pop-up panel, the rear flap supporting a sliding portion having a tab disposed distally from the pop-up panel;

    separating the pop-up device from the second web;

    adhering the tab to the front cover in proximity to the first fold;
