Print out the box template on card stock or paper (card stock will work better).

Carefully cut out the shape along the solid outline.
Cut opposing slits on the tabs that form the box's lid, as indicated on the diagram.
Using a ruler and the tip of an unclicked pen or a paper clip, press along the dotted and dashed lines (dashes indicate "mountain" folds, and dots, "valley" folds). The scoring makes folding the box easier.
Make the 4 folds for the bottom of the box.
Next, starting at any corner, fold the middle of each triangular section toward what will be the inside of the box. A bit of glue or tape on the folds will help the box keep its shape, but it isn't absolutely necessary.
Once you've folded all the corners, fold over the side flaps, and then the 2 lid flaps, interlocking their opposing slits.
