then cut the pieces , following the lines carefully.

Step 2: Saw Your Base

saw your base.

making sure to leave an extra 1cm at the top or bottom of the base

add the 1cm to the 8x8

Step 3: Glue the Cut Sides

now cut your sides also add 1cm

the extra 1cm is to make sure the pieces sit not to tight.

once you have cut your sides,glue them to your base.

add colour all over if you like, using permenant markers .;.

Step 4: Glue the Paper to Your Other Base

with your cut out bits of paper

glue them to your other 8x8

leave them for an hour or so to dry and bond.

once dryed.

carefully cut out the shapes.

then remove the paper..;.

Step 6: Fit the Bits Into the Base

now with the cut out shapes give all the sides a little sanding, but not to much or you risk putting the shapes out.

then with differant colours, colour your shapes.

then fit the shapes into your tray.

and thats it.

it makes a lovely gift for someone or if you have kids it will be ideal.
