Default animating irregular shaped masks

this seems like it should be much easier than i am finding it.
what i want to be able to do is to be able to reveal the outline of a rectangle, from the top left corner, to the right top, to the right bottom, to the left bottom and up to the top left.
whenever i try to add a new element to the original masking layer it disregards it. i am tearing my hair out as this seems like it should be so simple.
any help would be very appreciated

the problem is that the two different object tweens wont go on one layer. im sure there must be a simpler way of doing this.
