Popcorn Box Tutorial

Here's the promised tutorial on how to put together the Sizzix XL Popcorn Box. The box itself is larger than I expected. The one I've made for this tutorial has simply been stamped with no extra decoration - very minimal.

Here are the pieces needed to create the box.
If you want to stamp straight onto the box then now is the time to do this.
To decorate the outside of the box, stamp onto the side with the tape.
I've actually stamped the inside of the box too just to add to the overall effect.
Attach the two side panels together as shown.
Now add the lid part and the base pieces as shown here.
Attach the side panels together to complete the box portion.
Turn the box upside down and fold the side panels in
and tuck them under the 'U' shaped piece.
Now fold in the final piece and tuck the flap in through the slot.
Here's what the base should look like - very neat and tidy.
And there we have it, the completed box ready to be decorated and filled.
Hope you like it.
EDIT: To answer Angela's query regarding the size, it's:
3 and a half inches tall
Top is 2.5 inches square (well, just over)
Base is 1.75 inches square (again, just over)
