  2. With Part A glue together all 6 Pieces with glue at each miter joint.

  3. Allow to dry for a few hours

  5. Using Superglue glue the Cardboard to the bottom of the hexagon, make sure the when looking through the hexagon you can see the felt.

  6. On the back side of the cardboard line up part C and glue the piece down lining it up. Then Place 2 brad nails on each side (12 total), make sure to take care so nails don't shoot through the sides.

  7. Glue Part B around the outside of the Hexagon so that it hides the seem between part C and the Part A Hexagon.
