Default Concertina mini album instructions needed

Hi
I hope someone can help!

A couple of years ago I made a concertina book which used a Nesties die to make windows - you ended up with a book that could be viewed from either side and then it all folded up flat(ish). It's not the sort with an accordion folded spine or the sort which is simply a zig-zag book. I remember it was fairly easy to make, but I can't for the life of me remember how it was done, and I've searched high and low for the instructions with no success as yet, I gave it away as a gift so I don't have it anymore to poke about at! I'm really hoping someone here will recognise the style and be able to help as I really want to make another and not being able to remember how is like an itch I can't reach to scratch!
I'm going to try and attach some photos so you can see how it looked as it's really difficult to explain in words!
Thanks in advance xx

What a cool project. It looks to me that it is similar to the Tunnel Card tutorial we have.

Except for instead of a card, you adhere several 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4") pieces of cardstock together mountain/valley style. Then you cut windows in the center of 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" pieces of patterned paper and adhere them opposite of your cardstock (where your cardstock has a mountain fold, your patterned paper will be adhered on the other side with a valley fold). Does that sound like it could be it?

Thanks for the reply
It sounds similar, if not exactly the same. I've been having a close look at the photos I took and am hopeful of being able to work it out.
I'm going to have a try, anyway
