Just trying to figure this out, so I can stamp it. I am suppose to have already been to the grocery store and back..but geez..how can I go when there is stamping to be done??

Thanks!
The directions are a basic guideline, I think. I wanted to mat mine, so I did my first fold at 4" instead of 4-1/4", but then when I went to mount it on the back piece, I realized that I needed to trim the length as well. I only cut off 1/8", because I was already chopping off part of the picture.

I'm thinking if you want to mat it on a single mat, those first 2 marks need to be at 5-1/4" & 3-1/4". For a double mat, go 5" & 3-1/2". Hope that makes sense & makes it easier for y'all.
