I got these today and put them up about an hour ago - it took all of five minutes. I was debating whether to try them, and to tell you the truth, the review that made me decide to get them was the 1-star 'don't buy this product' review - it described exactly what they were and it sounded like they were exactly what I was looking for.
I live on a street just off of a major road in a very collegiate neighborhood. During the day I get a LOT of sun, and at night there is a very bright streetlight just outside my window, and it being a busy neighborhood, there are usually fire trucks going up the street at night (those wacky college kids and their candles...) As I rent, I didn't want anything too permanent, and I wanted something easily replaceable and affordable in case of any problems that might spring up. I put these up behind my white roller shades and they're going to work fantastically - I can't wait for my day off when I can finally SLEEP through the morning!
They are heavy, but flexible, very thick paper, thinner than oaktag/posterboard but very dense. The accordian pleat is very stylish. You raise and lower them by gathering the amount of shade you want to raise and clipping them with the plastic clips that are included in the box. To cut them, don't use a knife - a simple pair of scissors works just fine, as long as you don't try to cut the entire shade in one fell swoop.
The box of 6 shades was $30, with free super-saver shipping - at five bucks a pop, they're well worth it (I certainly couldn't fold posterboard this accurately, that's for sure!) My roomates will probably use a couple, and again we have extras as well as the lengths cut off from the shades to use for something I'm sure.

Size: 48" x 72"-6 PackColor: Black
These have been a life changer! I have been doing shift work for over 12 years and I have never found an affordable, effective, yet visually pleasing and convenient option to darken my room for daytime sleep. I've used roller shades, mini-blinds, curtains, room darkening curtain panels, cardboard, blankets, you name it. I've found that the most effective method to block light (cardboard and blankets) is the most hideous to look at. The more visually pleasing options (blinds, shades) inevitably allow glaring rays of light in that always seem to find my face. The past few years, I've let the visually pleasing factor outweigh the effectiveness factor, but I finally got tired of it. So, I went on the search for a solution and came across these shades on several different sites.

These shades are paper and marketed as being "temporary". They are essentially a really long piece of pleated, thick, black construction paper with a tape strip on the top that is used to affix it to your window frame. There is no roller or pull cord mechanism, as they are simply folded up/down to the desired level and then held in place by two black clips (they are included and are much like chip-clips). You install them by simply measuring your window opening and cutting the shade with a razor-edge blade, such as a box cutter. The shade is pliable enough I just held it up into to the opening, bending the excess portion of the shade outward, and then marked my cut with a white crayon. I used a straight edge to hold my place, and then with several swipes of the blade, they were cut to size. Remove the strip that covers the adhesive and then you're ready to stick it in place. I attached mine to the metal portion of the inside of the window pane. I removed my blinds, however that wasn't necessary.

We love these shades. What an inexpensive solution to the problem of daylight leaking in around the drapes when you want to sleep in late. We have them installed in every window of our home, behind our plantation shutters. I also think they help keep the rooms a bit cooler in summertime, and oh, that lovely pitch black when you want to sleep in. Wonderful. They are super easy to put up. The sticky strip is very durable. Ours have been up in our home for 7 years and haven't fallen once. I have actually bought extras over the years, and packed them or shipped them ahead to my families homes when we visit. I put them up there so I can sleep in. (I am a light sleeper and wake up at first light streaming in.) My sister has left then up in her guest room for me, behind her miniblinds. When they are raised and clipped up, you cannot really notice them behind the miniblinds, so they aren't unattractive from outside or inside. Now granted, these are paper shades, with a very thin waxy laminate on the back to give them a little durability, and they are folded accordian like to raise or lower. They come with two plastic clips to hold them up when raised. My point being these aren't the height of elegance. I wouldn't have them up on a bare window permanently, as they aren't quite attractive enough for that in my opinion. But as an option behind existing blinds to block the light, or as a temporary fix for privacy and darkness til window coverings are permanently installed, these little guys are great.
Hints for installing. Cut them the exact width of the window opening so that they are a snug fit in the opening, not just the width of the glass, or the light will shine in on the sides. Also, buy the black color black-out shades. The white ones don't block out the light as well. These are nice and wide, but you can overlap them and maybe tape them together if you need them wider.
