Step 2: Main Board
Take ten white connectors, and connect them using green rods. Repeat to get four rows.
Also take ten blue connectors, and connect them using green rods. Make sure try are facing the same direction as in the picture! Repeat to get five rows. One row should have the two center connectors facing down as shown. Add two grey connectors to the two downward-facing blue connectors. These will act as supports in the center of the bulletin board.
Arrange all rows as shown. The row with the two supports should be in the middle of the arrangement, as shown. Connect the rows using green rods.
Step 3: Bottom and Side Edges
Take two grey connectors and slide them together as shown. Repeat to get nine pieces total. Connect them using green rods. Repeat to get two rows total.
Also make a row with ten pieces total.
Arrange the rows around the main board (from step two) as shown, and connect them to the board using green rods.
Step 4: Top Edge
Take two grey connectors and slide them together as shown. Repeat to get two pieces, and connect them using a green rod. Make another pair, and add a yellow connector to each as shown. Then, add a white connector and a blue connector to each piece. Make sure the blue connectors are facing the same direction as in the pictures!
Connect the two pieces together with a green rod. Then, add two red connectors and two yellow connectors to the top of the piece.
Add the top edge piece to the rest of the board using green rods. Then, add red connectors to the corners of the board, as shown. Finally, fill in all spaces using white rods. Make sure the white rods are facing the same direction as in the pictures!
Step 5: Adding Posts to the Board
To mount your board on the wall, simply hook the top edge onto nails, screws, or hooks on the wall through the openings in the top pieces.
