Pencil box, tutorial and file

After a few request on how to make this I am going to try and explain the best I can how to do this first download and print this file which I created for you to use PDF pencil unto card stock and score your first line just above the printed area..I am sorry this not professional but it was the only way I could figure it out.
One A4 cardstock printed will make two of these pencil boxes

After scoring the first line then score 7/8" from the first score line and every score line until the whole page is scored, score the sides as close as to the print out then cut the score lines at the side
Cut the sidesto the edge of the score lines and fold all the scored lines on the right sides trim all except for one as in pic below



then tape down the edges except for the long one


put glue or double sided tape on one edge and stick it down and tape the left side too


and now you are left with a box that looks like this
 
fold it over the box then trim off excess card



I hope this tutorial was easy enough to follow.
