The first thig was to determine the size i wanted .the size i wanted to end up with was 6 3/4 in  wide and  3 1/4 in tall .  so i cut my pieces at 4  1/2 in   by 6  3/4 in for the main part and  4 3/4 in  by 3 in for the base
i rounded all corners off just for safety reasons

On the main part i measured 1 1/2 in up and made a bend slightly more than a 45 deg angle.  you end up with the 3 1/4 tall and 6 3/4 wide


on the base i measured up 1 1/2 in up (the 3 in side ) and made a 45 deg bend .   you end up with the 4 3/4 wide and 1 1/3 tall
