I can't tell you how, because I've never done it myself.

However, here's a link to the photo gallery for multi-level cages with tops. Look around and see if it helps you figure it out.

How much coro you need for the top depends on how high you want the walls to be.
I guess I just want 6" sides. I need to now asap my dad wants to go get it now!!D:
use a measuring tape and add six inches...
How do I measure it?
Do I add 6 inches to both measurements?
Yeah, so say the inside is 27inches by 14 inches, I would shave off a bit or it's not going to fit... So... 26inches by 13 inches, then add 6 inches to each side so you can fold up.
Great setup you have so far!

Here are a couple of shots of the lid I built...

Open. If you look in the center you will see the 2 grids I used for support, to keep the top from caving in if one of our cats got on. I knocked the wire out of 2 grids and de-burred to give him walk around space.
