Default How to make a tail guard?

Please help me, I want to make a tail guard, but I really dont know how. I have a pattern of it (pict bellow). Ive got it from this forum but I cant find that thread again ... but I dont think there were instructions for use.
What do you make it from? and how do you put it on tail feathers?
Some pics of making it will be very helpful.

Thanks

I make mine out of cheap plastic folders. You can see the marshall tailmount I use in the picture (imagine that was on the bird's tail). You just slide the cable tie in to hold it on.
