The two added panels become a protective holder for an accordion-folded insert.
This week's format is a brilliant marriage of the centered swinger fold and the classic gate fold.

In this case, a dinner plate that goes from empty to full. It's a can't-miss episode that is sure to inspire!
This week's featured format is smart on every level, and it's a great example of how you can be creative and impactful in your marketing endeavors without breaking the bank.
