Maybe an "A" frame hinge?

The left angle is the piece to be tipped in.

The right edge is the page.

The shape ^ in between is a hinge that is tipped to both the page and the
piece to be placed in the book.  If you place the hinge slightly below the
top of the piece to be placed in the book it should still allow for some
movement of the piece and not show too much.  To further camouflage the
hinge, you could also use the same paper on which the book was printed.
