Help for anyone frustrated with the box: Start first by scoring and folding everywhere the tic-marks indicate: this will help tremendously with the assembling of the box. First, fold the sides of the box and attach the tabs to the flat edges of the box make a rectangular-looking cylinder. Next take the U-shaped piece and fold it down. Then take the two pieces that look like hook-shaped pieces and fold them down, placing the tab/hooks under the sides of the U. Finally take the triangle-with-a-tab shape and push it through the rest of the U shape. It's all right if you end up pushing the other pieces down into the box with it. Just reach into the open side of the box and push all the pieces so they connect and lay flat (using your other hand or a table as support for the bottom). If you've done it correctly, the bottom of the box should look like two trapezoids touching with two triangles on the sides of those trapezoids. Tape this bottom to help with keep it in place. Now take the 4 tabs at the top of the open flaps and fold them so they're facing out/away from the box. Once you've done that you can fold the whole flap over and into the inside of the box (the small tab will provide support at the bottom, the rest of the flap provides support for the sides of the box). Now assemble the lid by scoring and folding as indicated by the tic-marks. Put something behind the cut-out image--like colored paper or acetate--or leave it open, your choice. Then glue each tab under the 2 flaps. Put candy or treats in the box and then put on the lid. You can see a picture (and eventually video) instruction of this at my blog: lemondropmemories.
