It worked! Thanks very much for this quick and easy Instructable!

I found it useful on step three to "mock" fold the corners into a box, without fully unfolding the corners yet, to get an idea of how it would make the box. Then I fully unfolded one corner at a time to then fold this larger corner over and into the bottom of the box (if this makes any sense).
