Draw and cut the three ribs (the j shape) , they will be as a fixer for the other parts (skeleton), then Draw the layers of the chest in different measures , but you have to be sure they are all in a good way , be sure you are cutting as well as you can to have edges on a one line.

Make small gapes in the two shapes will make them fixed together so, you do not need to use the glue gun .
