Then cut at the score line of the 8” side as shown below. Add adhesive to the corners as shown.

Remove adhesive and assemble the box.

Now it's time for some Simple Life...

Love this layout of my dad in front of the tractor, there are some many stories of us in El Salvador and a tractor that was in the family for so many generations, this just makes those memories come back to life.

This layout is of Nicole's Grandfather and Sister, we were scrapping together and she said that this photo was perfect for this line. So a layout was born.
