Step 2:

Score at 1", 3", 5",  7 " and 9".

Step 3:

Page should now have decorated side out. Score at 2", 4", 6" and 8" and 10" . Press firmly especially when you are scoring through two and three layers.

The previous score lines from Step 1 are not shown in diagram.

Step 3:

Flip the page over from top to bottom NOT  side to side. The left side of the paper will remain in the same orientation.

Step 4:

Turn your page so the top of the box is along the left and top fence. Score at 6”.

Previous score lines not shown

Step 5: The intersecting score lines have created ten 1” little squares and a smaller tab at the 10” score. Cut each of the ten little squares into points as shown. Cut the 1/2” tab off. Start to accordion fold, back and forth, creasing along each fold as you do it. Apply two way tape along the length of the side tab. Do not expose the adhesive yet.

Step 6: Fold the tabs in, right over left along bottom. Remove covering from two way tape and glue the side tab to the inside, retaining star shape. Glue tabs together.

Step 7: There are a couple of options for the bottom. Cut a circle to cover the hole. Be sure to use the same decorator paper and it will be less obvious. Trace the outline of the box onto the wrong side of the decorator paper. Cut inside the pencil lines. Glue into place.
