July 4 Number 3D Box Display

Dimensional numeral 4 is built as lid and base, 
then joined (enclosing a pellets or equiv. 
weight packet so it will stand upright). 
Accent shapes decorate the front, 
including divided front panel with "JULY" letters 
on the tall forward arm, and a trio of stars 
on the short back arm. 
A small punch-hole bracket on the lower panel helps hold 
the optional twine wrapping in place. 
Measures approx. 8.5" tall x 5" wide x 1.25" deep. 

(This tutorial is under construction.
Please return soon to view
the completed assembly guide.)
ASSEMBLY: 1. Identify and cut the shapes.
This layout shows the LID front,
overlay accent shapes
(including the "JULY" letters and stars),
the add-on tie tab shape, & the 4 boxing strips
This layout shows the BASE main shape
and the 4 boxing strips.
2. Prepare the accent lower shape by
bending the pop-up tie tab with punch hole forward,
also preparing the add-on tab by bending the rounded
"top" portion back in mirror image of the pop-up tab.
3. The two rounded ends with punch hole (to accept
the twine tie at end of assembly) will be placed
together back-to-back, EXCEPT the add-on tab
is first inserted upward from the underside of 
the accent shape, with the extension end being
attached to the underside to fill in the pop-up up
tab's opening.
Position the add-on tab as described, glue
rounded tips together with edges matched,
and glue the add-on extension to the underside
of accent shape.
4. Position and attach the upper and lower
accent shapes to the front panel,
noting that main accents are offset slightly
inside the panel edges.
Also insert and attach the JULY letter
shapes in the cutout openings,
and the stars in their corresponding openings.
