Step 2
Turn the cardstock so that the 9 1/2¨ length is
at the top of the Scor-Pal.
Score at 1¨, 3¨, 4¨ and 6¨.
Step 3
Keeping the 9 1/2¨ length along the top of the
Scor-Pal, shift the cardstock to the 15/16¨
mark (between the 7/8¨ and 1¨ mark) and
score at 8¨ and 10¨.
Note:
If you are not using a Scor-Pal, score
cardstock at 7 1/16¨ and 9 1/16¨.

Step 4
Keeping your cardstock oriented as it was in
step three, cut away the pieces along the
score lines as shown.
Scored lines were traced with a black marker
for this tutorial. The solid lines indicate
additional places to cut. The tab on the far right
side is ¾¨ long.
Note:
Use a ruler and measure, then draw the tab
with a pencil to make sure it is centered.
Step 5
Angle cut each of the four tabs. The blue arrow
is pointing to one of the four tabs.
Step 6
Cut a centered, 1¨ slot with a hobby blade on
the second score line from the left.

Note:
The black line indicates where the slot should
be cut. Use only one stroke of the hobby
blade; the slot needs to be narrow.
Step 7
Punch a 1 3/8¨ centered circle in the second
segment from the left.
Hint:
Draw an `X´ from corner to corner with a pencil
to help get the circle centered (the blue dotted
lines represents the pencil marks).
Step 8
Flip the cardstock over to the back side. Apply
adhesive around the circular hole as shown.
Remove the adhesive liner and place a piece of
window sheet (slightly smaller than 2¨ x 2¨)
over the circular hole.

Step 10

Step 11
Remove the adhesive liner from the four tabs
and assemble the bottom of the box.
Tuck in the circular window piece.
Close the lid of the box by slipping the tab into
the slot.
