You are beyond imaginative Kelli!

In part 4, number 3, shouldn't it be a rectangle of black and 1 1/2" sq of background? That's what the picture shows, but the directions are the opposite (see below).

3. Using 1 1/2 x 4" rect. of background, LONG edge facing up, and 1 1/2" sq. of black, make one left lower clip & flip unit.
