First you need to set up a shared folder from normal VBox interface (it just shows which folder from your normal system you want to share).

Then inside guest system just launch below command from the terminal:

sudo mount -t vboxsf NewFolder /home/UserName/Desktop/NewFolder

This will mount NewFolder (from your host machine set up in point 1.) into UserName's Desktop/NewFolder
You can of course make a shortcut for this command or even add it to the fstab so it will mount automatically on system start.

I'm not sure but think that you also need to install guest additions

Hope I was not too confusing ;)
