Hello,

I love this project, but I was wondering if I could get a more detail description of how to fold the box once scored and cut?

How do you get the inverted curved corners on your top decorative sheets? You use it a lot and it really dresses it up. Thanks

These boxes are awesome! I made 25 for my grade 4 students to decorate for Father's Day. We made checker boards and the boxes were perfect to hold all the checkers. The kids thought they were great because they could decorate them any way they wanted.
