Fifth Day of Christmas -Oragami Treat Box

Here is the picture of today's project, forgive me, I will post the instructions later today.
You will need a piece of cardstock cut to 11 7/8" x 8 3/4".
Step 1: With the 8 3/4" side across the top of the paper cutter (using score blade for these steps), score at 2 7/8" and 5 7/8".
Step 2: With the 11 7/8" side across the top of the cutter, score at 1 1/2" and 4 1/2" from top to bottom. Score at 2 1/2" ONLY from the top edge to the first score line, skip over the middle, and score from the second score line to the bottom edge. The middle section that is UNSCORED should measure 2 7/8".
Step 3: In all four corners, cut the 2 1/2" vertical score line from top edge down to the horizontal score line. On that same horizontal line, cut from the 1 1/2" vertical score line over to the 4 1/2" vertical score line. It should form a "T".
Step 4: Turn cardstock over and fold up toward you on all score lines. Bring the middle sections in together, overlapping the sides. Adhere them in place to form the base of the box. Using scissors miter the corners of all 4 sides of the 1" wide sections. Bring those sections in and adhere to the inside of each lid section.
Step 5: Bring sides up to meet in the middle to complete the box. Embellish as desired.
The size of this box is approximatley 3" square.
