We start with twelve boxes, multiply by two boxes, and now have twenty-four boxes. We take our twelve boxes two times to get twenty-four boxes:

SeaGreen Box   Lavender Box   Orchid Box   DarkGreen Box   DarkOrange Box   BurlyWood Box   Brown Box   DeepPink Box   YellowGreen Box   Thistle Box   Indigo Box   Empty Box    SeaGreen Box   Lavender Box   Orchid Box   DarkGreen Box   DarkOrange Box   BurlyWood Box   Brown Box   DeepPink Box   YellowGreen Box   Thistle Box   Indigo Box   Empty Box
