Cut away corners, inner and outer, along lines

Place ribbon that allows the frame's leg to pitch out connecting the strut leg to the easel back, and glue between the back and front strut leg inside along vertical side of strut legs, and glue front bottom strut leg over on top - make sure ribbon front side, if shiny single face satin, is facing out, against and under front strut leg, leaving ribbon tail dangling from bottom corner
For frame to stand with strut leg, and finish frame:
Attach top part of strut leg to easel back panel, aligning the bottom right corners, before gluing down top part of strut leg panels
Push the dangling ribbon tail in front of standing frame, with ribbon tail under bottom of frame, and in front of frame
Mark where frame stands on its own, by placing a pin where ribbon meets bottom back corner, to mark where strut leg pitches out for it to stand well

Thank you all so much! And, THANK YOU to all of the teachers out there! My mother is a retired teacher's aide, and I come from a family of teachers, teacher's aides, and school board members, so I know the value of educators!
