Okay, here's what I recall:
The key is that you are going to push a card to the side with your thumb and then pick it up to show its face, then replace it on top of the packet before displacing it to the bottom of the packet.
You shold be a step back from your audience as the displays are faceOut rather than turnovers - but turnovers could work too.
The packet starts face down in your left hand. The show card starts on top, two others underneath.
Push the top card off to the side with your thumb.
Then pick up the top card from that position.
Show its face.
Replace on top of the packet.
Push off two cards as one and "put that on the bottom".
Push off two cards and then pick them up as one apparently the same way as you did the first card.
Show the face card of the double to the audience.
Replace it (them) on top of the packet.
Push off the top card and "put that on the bottom".
Push off the top card and display to the audience.
There are moments when it might startle wise-acres to snap a single card during the sequence.
Hope this helps,
