    Why did i find this in the USB section? You should probably change that.

    because this one has a unique design and if you make multiple units you can make bigger boxes

    damn.. dude.. ur instructions are not very clear.. i figured it out thoug. The point u should improve is the folding instruction! But nice box ;> thanks


    in that step all i did was fold the paper into 1 triangle and then you have the leftover tab so that is were step 2 comes in. all that you are doing in step 2 is folding that tab backwards
