Step 1: Materials and Tools
-Cardboard - I used the bottom from a case of water bottles, and the packaging from some good 'ol Ramen Noodles
-White glue and other adhesives of choice - I used white glue and tacky glue
-bowl to mix in
-something to mix with, preferably disposable
**You may also want items that you plan to carry in your new briefcase to size up with**
Step 2: Ruler...Scalpel..
Trim your boxes to the same dimensions LxW. Lucky for me, my boxes had nearly the same width, which is exactly what I want. Unfortunately though, the lengths were different. To fix this, cut a strip from the middle of the longer box. Make sure the strip you remove makes the new length just a bit shorter than the length of the other box.
Repair the damages. Using the strip you just cut, make a few small pieces to cross the gap and keep both halves together. Stick 'um down with tacky glue.
Since the cardboard bottom from the case of water bottles didn't have square corners, I had to separate bend and rejoin them to be square.
