2.  Fold the score lines by folding the sides or tabs on top of the rest of your cardstock as shown.
3.  Put Tear & Tape on the bottom rectangle of ONE of the pieces.
4.  Flip the pieces over and apply Tear & Tape to the side tabs.
5.  Attach the bottom pieces first as shown in the video.
6.  Attach each side piece as shown in the video.
7.  To close the box: make sure the outside points on the top flaps are always on top of the cardstock as you slide the cut lines and top flaps together.  Practice a few times and it will be easy.
