Place tear & tape on the ½’ scored section of the Pear Pizzazz and the Daffodil Delight card stock. Crease all the score lines on the Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight card stock in same direction with a bone folder, keeping the tear & tape on the outside of the folds, i.e. it should not be on the inside of the box that it forms.
Adhere the striped paper and the green strip on the Pear Pizzazz card stock in the 2 sections next to the tear & tape. Flip over the Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhere the rain paper to the largest section at the top (figure 1)

Important Step:

It is time to take off the tear & tape and adhere ends to card base. First, fold the Pear Pizzazz card stock between the bottom of the card (i.e. the fold between the bottom of back of the card and the bottom of the card, i.e. the section with no card stock). Second, fold in the section between the top of the stripe paper and the section with the green paper card stock (see Figure 5). Take off the tear & tape, keeping the folds in place and lay flat against back of card to adhere.

The next step is to adhere the Daffodil Delight cardstock to back of card. Keeping the card folded as you did for the Pear Pizzazz piece, fold the Daffodil Delight card stock between the two green pattern papers and take off the tear & tape and adhere to back of card. You card should be laying flat when you are adhering these pieces.
