Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut the box base and cover out of heavy card stock, or cut it from a store bought treat box sized 12" or larger. Just trim the sides away and mount the 12" square on your cutting mat.

If using a store bought box as stock, I recommend using the custom cut settings; low-med speed, max pressure, cut 2 times.
Score each along the folding guides, on both sides.
Cut the remaining shapes in the colors of your choice.
Assemble each of the animal shapes with glue, or the adhesive of your choice.
Affix the acetate to the under side of the window with double sided, permanent adhesive tape.

If you can't find acetate you might cut a square from treat bags sold in the candy and cake section of crafting stores. It is thinner material and can be tricky to fix down taught and smooth, but will do the trick.
Affix the clouds to the cover, followed by the frame, then the animals and finally the grass edging and allow to dry if using glue.
Fold the base and cover, then attach each at the corners with permanent double sided adhesive tape.
