There are different ways in which you could stick the tapes onto the board to form an interesting pattern.
This is how i've done my frame.
Starting from the top left corner,first apply glue all along the breadth of the top frame until where the right frame and the top frame share a common area as shown in the figure.
This space gives room for us to tuck the tapes which will cover the right frame under the top frame.

Step 4: The same!
