If I had the box here, I could put it together, but it's kinda hard to decribe the procedure by typing it out.

If no other forumites can descibe it properly, either, your best bet is to just take it back to your LCS and ask them to assemble it for you.

you fold in the large flap into the box.
then the other two sides (the smaller sides.
now flip it all over so you can reach inside the open top to get at these folded in flaps.
lift up the largest on (on top of the 2 small ones) to free up the side flaps (the 2 small ones)
so that they come up next to the short sides of the actual box.

when that are up all the way, it frees up the large flap to lay down flat and it become the bottom of the box held in place by the side flaps.

as you get better, try to do it fast and cleanly so you dont add any folds to the pre-folded boxes, thereby weakening them.

that WAS haed to type...

Okay, excuse my crude drawing as I instruct you in this.



1. Fold side "A" inside box, ensure that it fits securely.
2. Fold sides "B" and "D" flat against side "C"
3. Fold sides "B", "C", and "D" up. This forms the bottom of the carton.
4. Place carton on flat surface.
5. Position side "B" up against the opposite carton wall.
6. Position side "D" up against the opposite carton wall.
7. Push side "A" downward against the bottom of the carton.

Question: Do you have one like this that IS put together?? Look at it, see were the folds & tucks are, OR, take

apart, and SEE what is what. Once you get it you will never ask again!!
