Required tools and supplies:
  • X-acto knife and fresh blade
  • Tweezers
  • Good cutting mat
  • Detailing scissors
  • Fast-grab, quick-dry white craft glue that dries clear
  • Quick-dry glue that bonds paper and fabric
  • Small piece of aluminum foil to use as a glue pot
  • Artist's paint brush to apply craft glue

 
1.  Cut

 
2. Fold at logical points and lines.

 
3.  Use a fresh X-acto blade to cut pattern. Use poster removable clay to hold pattern in place.

   
4.  Glue board's edging.

 
5. Edging when completed.

 
6. Glue board covers

 
7. Glue corner tabs of box to the interior blank surface of respective corners. Use tweezers to get a good bond.

 
8. Crease side lining panels and glue in place. Use tweezers along crease's edge.

 
9. Size box floor lining. Glue in place.

 
10. Glue box lid's corner tabs as you did the box bottom's tabs. Repeat the steps for gluing the side lining panels.

 
11. Create the "hinge" by gluing the back tab to outer surface of the box.

 
12. To paint pieces, place a line of poster removable clay on a piece of cardboard that you can afford to ruin with paint. Carefully place pieces into the clay. Not too far into the clay that the bases don't get painted. Also position the pieces far enough apart that the spray can't make contact with all surfaces.

 
13. Make at least 2 sprayed coats of paint. This is how they look after one coat.

For positioning of the pieces, follow the photos below.
