Each front panel has 6 layers (wow) which is pretty sturdy...........so some tweaking had to be done otherwise the front panels would be 7 layers...............wow! I trimmed the panel down to 1/2" to apply sticky tape on both sides. Like the background? It's also a Dandelion stamp #2025 Kaki Mochi (found here) stamped all over.
