  1. Step 1

    Position cardstock lengthwise. Using scoring blade on paper trimmer, score cardstock at 2", 5", 7", and 10".

    Turn cardstock, and score at 2" and 7".
  3. Step 3

  4. Step 4

    Hold cardstock horizontally with the 2" section at the top.
    Use scissors to cut off all but one 2" tall section from the top of the cardstock as shown. This will be the flap closure for the box.

    Cut the narrow piece at an angle to create tab for adhesive.

    Make vertical cuts at the bottom to create 1 1/2" tall flaps, and cut off the narrow piece. This will be the bottom of the box.
  5. Step 5

    Remove guide from corner rounder and punch along 2" flap to create a scalloped edge on box flap, making sure to line punch up so that scallops connect. Or, use scalloped scissors for a faster decorative edge.
  6. Step 6

    Use a bone folder or other straight edge to sharply crease all scored lines to shape box.

    Apply Sticky Strip™ close to side tab's score line.

    Remove red liner, and carefully construct box.
  7. Step 7

    Fold small flaps toward center of box, and large flaps over small flaps.

    Apply Sticky Strip to outside edge of large flap under what will be the box front.

    Remove red liner, and apply pressure to finish bottom of box.
  8. Step 8

    Line up front of box with back of box at top and pinch together. Release.
  9. Punch two holes in flap with 1/8" handheld punch.
  10. Step 9

    Pull flap down to close box, and use a pen to mark where holes were punched.

    Use 1/8" handheld punch to punch holes at markings.
