2.  Paint glue to the three outer panels of the ends of the tray (the sides with the tabs). Press the blank sides together. Please note that the solid pink panel with glue to the blank surface of the tray's underside. Use a pair of tweezers to get a good thin bond.

3. Next, glue the four pink tabs to the blank surface of the opposite tray side. You should have the beginnings of a four-sided tray at this point.

4. Paint glue to the blank surface of the two remaining sides. Press with tweezers for nice thin bond. Remember that the solid pink panels will end up glued to the underside of the tray.

5. Glue the "Paper Minis" panel to the underside of the tray to give it strength.
