Step 3. Apply adhesive to the 45 degree corners on both pieces and fold inward.

Step 4. Adhere the triangle portion inward on both pieces.

Step 5. Adhere the remaining flap on the inside to complete a half box.

Adhere the remaining flap on the inside to complete a half box.

Step 6. Score 7/8"on all four sides of three of the 4 5/8" squares. These will become your box trays.

Trim/cut according to the solid lines in the diagram. Fold along all score lines and adhere the corner flaps to the inside.

Step 7. Using piece (A) from Step 1, adhere one tray to the very bottom and one to the very top.

Step 8. Cut a piece of scrap cardstock measuring 1 7/8" x 5". Using piece (B) from Step 2, place the piece in the uppermost corner and mark 2 small marks. Repeat for the neighboring box side.

Step 9. Using piece (B), adhere the remaining tray using the marks made in Step 8 as a guide for the box bottom

Step 10. Stand pieces (A) and (B) together and adhere the back flap. Adhere one of the 3” x 3” squares to the back to cover the half flap.

Step 11. Adhere your 3", 2 7/8" and 2 3/4" squares according to the diagram. Cut one only diagonally.

Step 12. Adhere layered squares and triangles to box base to decorate. Stamp, layer and adhere images to finish the box.

Hint: Make sure you adhere the image that goes on the side with the triangles only on one triangle with dimensional. If you apply dimensionals on both triangles, the box won't open.
