  1. Directress shows the child how to undo the press-studs.
  2. Starting from the top, she places the left hand's thumb near the studs.
  3. Use the right hand to pull the flap up by holding near the stud's edge with the right hand's thumb and index finger to snap it apart.
  4. Repeat for the rest of the studs.

  6. The Directress then brings the flaps back together again, starting from the top, shows the child how to do up the press-studs.
  7. Place the left hand on the left side of the flap with the index finger near the stud button.
