Cut all of the 2.5″ score lines up to the intersecting score line.

Fold back the 2.5″ tabs on one side.

On the opposite end, cut the 2nd and 4th tabs to half their length.

Adhere all the paper panels to the white card panels.

Adhere the panels to the card base as shown.

Apply adhesive to the 0.5″ tab and fold inwards.

Fold the card base in half over the 0.5″ tab to secure.

Open up the box and turn upside down so that the bottom is facing upwards, with the two short pieces to the sides.

Fold in the long pieces, then fold down one of the short sides. Apply adhesive to the edge, then fold the other short side down over it to secure.

Turn the box upright.

Score the 2.75″ x 3.5″ pieces of card at 0.5″ and 3″ on the 3.5″ side.

Fold in the 0.5″ sides and apply adhesive.

Slide into the box, fold out the 0.5″ tabs and adhere to the side walls.

Repeat with all three pieces.

Adhere the paper circles to the card circles.

Adhere the circles to the front flaps.

Stamp Oddball Superhero onto white card, colour with your preferred medium, then fussy cut around the outline.

Cut two long strips of acetate – approx. 12″ x 0.5″

Cut a selection of superhero themed embellishments.

Adhere the acetate to the back of Oddball Superhero and each of the embellishments. Cut the actetate to different lengths and adhere them to the dividers inside the box.
