Alright, our next step is cutting off our corners. What you're going to do is you're
going to want to cut them so they have a diagonal in such a manner like this. So in order to
do that, you're going to take your bottom to your top. Make sure you get it on there in a perfect
manner, and basically just cut straight down. There is one. Okay, this way, there we go.
And again, make sure you got your corners measured along your lines, and there we are.
We have our two cut corners, and next step what I'm going to do is go ahead and tape
those together. So I'll do that right now. It's always good to have a good glue. And
normally I am very conservative with my glue, but considering these are going to be secured
together, you want to have a good bond, so feel free to be very generous with your glue.
So now that we have our bottom base loaded with glue, I'm going to take our other section
and I'm going to go ahead and put it right on top of that. So that way I have, what almost
looks like a triangle but with its top chopped off. So in our next step we'll be basically,
we'll be cutting our patterned paper to go on the cover of our crisscross card, which
will be our patterned paper right here. Okay?
