Smaller icon for embedded PDF

How would I go about converting the attached PDF to look like the above?

You should do something like:

  1. Create the page you want to contain the attachments
  2. Attach the files you need
  3. In the end of the page body include the attachments macro ( you do this by writing {attachments}

How would I go about converting the attached PDF to look like the above?
