You should now have five sleeve. Two of the sleeves should have thumb sliding holes, two should have side sliding holes, and one should be open on two sides. You can now lay out the wallet. I positioned all sleeves in the same direction so all cards would be upright when using the wallet. Alternatively, you could have the back two sleeves (side slider and thumb slider) face opposite as the front two. This would allow both sliders to operate in alternate direction (slide down for one sleeve, up for the other), but cards facing down could slide out.
