Guess what? I'd never made that size IRL yet, either, and I made the exact same mistake on the first try as you did! The problem is that this box is SOOO close to being square, but not quite, that it's really easy to score it backwards on the first piece (the bottom of the box). An easy way to tell if you've scored it correctly is that the scores are symmetric all the way around. If you do it wrong, you'll have a really narrow score on two sides, and a wider one on the other two. Does that help?
