If you're just looking to make a simple square 2x2 box, simply start with a 6x6 piece of cardstock. Score at 2 inches and again at 4 inches. Turn your paper so those score lines are now running horizontal. Score at 2 inches and again at 4 inches. Cut your "flaps", fold and glue and you are done. This little box is super sturdy.

Since your card stock is already 7.5 x 5.5, I'd cut it all to 5 x 5. Then score each side at 1.5 inches. That would give you a box that is 2 x 2 with 1.5 inch sides.

You could cut the paper to 5.5 x 5.5, if you need a box with taller sides, and then score at 1.75 on all sides but I find the "even" measurements easier {but I have a scorepal not a MS score board}.

Thanks Bugsy2.. I appreciate your help..rereading my post, I don't think I made my original post very clear.. sorry was late at night when posted.. glad to know the box is very sturdy though.

scrapalette I see you understood my ' not so comprehensive post' . Thanks for responding as well. I will try this and get back to you both and let you know how it went. I like the idea 1.5 inch sides. hmmm.. hadn't thought of that part.. would allow it to show the white cardstock. Since I have all this 7.5 x 5.5 brown cardstock would hate to waste it if I can use it..

Will return when I get one finished..BigGrin not sure if I can post a pic or not? never done that before.. thnx

JOY
