Tutorial on my Blog Hop Treat Box

I've had a few emails and comments about the dimensions for the H & M Blog Hop Box I made HERE.
I've never done a tutorial before so please be gentle...lol
Start with a piece of 8 x 8 cardstock and score each side at 2.5".
Then score two sides at 2 and 6...but only to the score lines as you see in the photo. The X gets cut out.
Trim off the four corners. Punch out your window with a circle punch. Here I used a 1 3/4". For a little more fun...try punching on opposite sides so light goes through the box or use a different shape or nestie to make your window!
Score all lines.
Adhere some sticky strip to the backside of the flaps and tape your box together.
Here is your box completed....well minus any decorating ;)
Now take a piece of cardstock that measures 4 2/16th square. Score it at 1/2" on each side. Snip 4 corners as I have done here. Adhere some sticky strip to the back of those little flaps and tape your box lid together!
If you have any questions...holler at me :)

Thanks Dawn!! This is fantastic!! I am soooo bad at figuring these types of things out - my brain just doesn't like to think 3-dimensionally! So I really appreciate the pics and instructions!! :-) I'll be using this soon!!!

I tried this treat box 3 times and I couldn't get it to work. What is the finished treat box measurements?
I will try it again and see what happens. It is probably just me.
Thanks Dawn...
