Place the cardstock horizontally (landscape) onto the Score Tool. Score at 1 1/4" and at 3 3/8". Rotate the cardstock (again horizontal) to score the other side at 1 1/4" and 3 3/8".
Now turn the cardstock to be vertical (portrait) and score at 2 1/8". Rotate the cardstock (again vertical) to score the other side at 2 1/8".
Place the Diagonal Score Insert on the Score Tool Base. Be sure that you check the bottom for the UP arrow so your Diagonal Plate is correctly aligned on the Score Tool. Place the cardstock horizontally on the Score Tool and score from 5 1/2" to the first cross bar of score lines. FLIP the cardstock over and repeat, scoring from 5 1/2" to the first cross bar of score lines. Rotate the cardstock and repeat for the other side.
Now to assemble your Box Card. If you want a scalloped edge, such as in the sample at the top of this post, be sure to punch this before adhering the corners of your Box. Try folding your card up without adhesive before you permanently adhere the corners.
I used Sticky Strip to adhere my Box Card. I like to put the corners wraps to the inside of the Box Card, so that the seam doesn't show, rather than wrapping it around the outside of the card flaps. In this picture, my adhesive is on the WRONG side of the corner and I actually had to take my Box apart and fold it to the other side so that the wrap adheres to the inside of the Box.
