Finished Size: 36 wide, 6 tall, 5 deep(Note: The window shown is 34" across, and the cornicemeasures 36" wide and 6" tall. If your window measurementsvary, adjust the sizes accordingly. For windows wider than36", glue two sheets together along the 12" edges, joiningthem with thick, white craft glue and wood picks ortoothpicks; u-pins inserted between the pieces will helpenhance the bond. Let glue dry completely before moving on tothe cornice construction.)
