how do i wrap a rough opening with felt


i will be installing a window with a flange and was hoping to get some info on the best way to do it using 30# felt paper.

i wasnt going to do Tyvek because ill only be doing about 25 feet long.

its basically new construction with osb as sheathing.

opening is about 41 x 48

thanks

ummm....thanks?

Do i wrap the felt in the opening then install the window and then wrap the outside sheathing to butt against the sides of the window?
in a overlapping fashion of course.
