Box Card again

I've had a request for the measurements for this Box Card - so here goes.............

Card size - 21cm x 11"
on the long side score at:  2 1/2", 4", 7", and 81/2"
and then on both short ends score 11/2" from each end.
you need to cut off every corner (the purple squares)  and then cut to the 4" line to make a flap (indicated by the grey thick lines).

this diagram is NOT to scale or anything, it's just a picture to help you. ( I needed my teenage son to help me work out how to do this!!!)   You need to fold all folds, and also manually score the diagonal lines to help the box fold correctly.  I used a ruler and the scoring tool from the score board for this step.

When adhering the box together, I folded the diagonal lines to make a point, into the middle of the box, and then folded the side panels over the top of this point, and then adhered the "flap" to the back of the side of the box.  I did this for every corner.  I hope this makes sense,...... if not, just book a party and I will do it for you for your project at your party!!!  :)
