Cut out the following pieces: Files 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, and 19.
Adhere together the decorative sides (Files 8, and 9) and set them aside for later.
Using the score lines from the cutouts as a guide, score and crease the folds.
Prep the bottom piece with double-sided tape.
Stick the base to the two sides of the drop box. (Pictures below only show the base being taped to one side but you should also stick the base to the other side when the first side is done.)
Prepare the top/back piece (file 1). I used my ATG tape instead of the red-lined tape because this tape is more forgiving.
Adhere the side cutout to the top/back piece starting from the bottom of the top/back piece.
Before attempting to adhere the curved parts of the mail drop box, make sure that the top/back piece is stuck onto the straight sides of the two side pieces.
Adhere the front of the top/back piece to the front of the drop box and then adjust the curved part. I had to tuck in the two curved parts so that the three pieces of cutouts (2 side pieces plus the front/back piece) all fit snugly.
Adhere the top of the front piece to the bottom of the slot cutout.
Adhere one side of the front down onto the drop box.
Adhere the other side of the front piece down.
Stick the two little flaps/sides of the slot piece to the drop box.
Tuck in the top of the slot piece, and adhere it to the top of the drop box.
Adhere the prepare pieces from Step 2 to the two sides of the drop box.
Decorate the front of the drop box to your heart's content or just sit back and enjoy the assembled Valentine Mail Drop Box.
