2. the top and bottom edges of the inner layer are lined up with the top and bottom edges of the outer layer, and the inner layer is narrower than the outer layer, thereby forming a margin along each longitudinal edge of the outer layer that is not in contact with the inner layer.
The top and bottom edges of each side panel are lined up with the top and bottom edges of the outer layer, the outer longitudinal edge of one side panel is lined up with one of the longitudinal edges of the outer layer, and the outer longitudinal edge of the other side panel is lined up with the other longitudinal edge of the outer layer; wherein the inner longitudinal edge of each side panel is folded inward in·ward
