3. Determine which is your top flap (it will be longer than the underside) and cut a hole to view picture.
4. On the back fold you'll want to cut a slot 1/4" wide and 1/4" from each edge at the top.
5. Then cut 1 white and one acetate to fit through the slot. However at the bottom they need to be wider by 1/4" on each side and down about 1/4". to look like this. You also also need a piece of white behind the hole opening. (It looks way better than leaving the orginal card colour) Also a contrasting colour around the hole is nice! 4 1/4" x 4 3/4" top bottom 5 1/4".
6. With black ink stamp image on white. Then use stamp a ma jig to align the picture on the window sheet. Colour the picture on the white cardstock.
7. Use a thin strip of sticky tape to hold the window sheet to the white aligning directly overtop. Trim to exactly same shape.
8. Slide up through the notch at top. Pull window sheet through and overtop. 9. fold front over the back pieces and fold the extra cardstock to the back. Adhere using sticky strip. Here's the link to the original directions from hgtv. I've actually turned it on it's side. http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/crafting/article/0,1789,HGTV_3352_1944842,00.html
