Measurements and ScoringCardstock measures - 8 1/2 x 10 inches
DSP measures - 1 3/4 x 4 3/4 (2 pieces)
Score on the long side @ 1/2, 2 1/2, 7 1/2, 9 1/2
Score on the short side @ 1/2, 2 1/2, 4 1/2, 6 1/2
Score in the large rectangles diagonally from the top right to the bottom left. See diagram below.
The black lines are score lines. The colored sections are the areas to remove. After removing the sections and with your cardstock in the same position as the diagram cut up the score lines to create the top and bottom of the box. See
photo below. Wedge the tabs as shown.
Fold and burnish all of the score lines. The diagonal lines should be fold in the opposite direction. They are valley folds.
Using a strong adhesive like sticky strip attach the long skinny rectangle to form the box.
Fold the box flat so it looks like this photo.
Then place a hand in each end and spread the interior space open. It may take a few tries to get the hang of how to open it. Don't give up. Fold the flaps in and there is your box. I decorated the top with flowers and attached my greeting on the side.
