I'm sorry that I was delayed posting directions - we were very busy today putting up our Christmas lights :)
I purchased a book called "Iris Folding" by Lisa Vollrath, published by Design Originals. The book contains several templates - and this card was made with one of them. Basically, you are folding papers in half lengthwise, and applying them in the order on the template. Use the template as a guide for cutting out the window you will be working in. Then, "tape" a copy of the template into the window - I used the repositionable correcting tape from Staples. In this book, the template has numbers and letters. The numbers indicate the order to apply the papers, and the letters signify the different papers that you have chosen. Place the fold on the line of the template and tape down. Do this with each section in order until you are done. Then you can remove your template.
A sample of some templates can be found on http://www.cardsandcrafts.freeservers.com/iristmpl.html
