Fold up the corner tabs and apply adhesive to the outsides. Fold them in and adhere to the inside of the adjacent sides to create the box base.

On the box lid, cut away the end corners from the 1/2″ section. On the opposite side, cut up on the score lines to the intersecting line and wedge each side of the corner tabs.
