Concluding tutorial on how to make the Paper Towns Three Drawer Nightlight Unit
Making the houses
Covering the box
Step 15 Covering the top of the box takes a little extra work. Cut a strip of Airplane Cardstock that is about 2" wide and is long enough to cover the length of your box. My box was longer than 12", so I had to extend the strip by carefully aligning the pattern and adhering two sections together. Attach this strip of Airplane Cardstock to the front-most area of the top.
Step 16 Attach three houses in a straight, evenly spaced row toward the front of the box. Use hot glue on the bottom edge of each house, then adhere the tabs to the box. Hold each house perpendicular to the box until it dries.
Step 17 Repeat Step 15, except make the strip a little wider because you may have to do some trimming. Lay this section flush against the back of your houses. Note where you need to trim the strip in order to match the pattern to the piece already on the top. Trim as necessary and adhere the strip to the box, making sure it is flush against the row of houses.
Step 18 Repeat Step 16 with the remaining two houses, placing them in a second row that can be seen between the front houses.
Step 19 Repeat Step 17. In addition to matching the pattern to the existing paper, you will also need to trim it to align with the back of the box.
Step 20 Insert drawers and add tea lights behind each house.
