k sure! well basically I took 32 cards. for the two big sides i used 8 cards each. For the small sides I used 4 each. Basically I sewed the cards together by side.
Sew like this:
       |       |
       |       |
_ _ _|_ _ _|
       |       |
       |       |
       |       |
(those are the stiches-only there were tons more!) do that all the way across. after you get all the sides sewn then hot glue cardboard to each side. Then get a piece of lining material and use fabric glue (and probably some hot glue) to glue material onto one of the sides. Don't cut off excess. Then use some of the extra material at the bottom of the big side and glue it to the cardboard side of the bottom ( this is the first step of attaching the pieces)-continue this process. Now you have your box shape. You will still be able to see the cardboard on each edge. So take two cards for each edge and bend them in half. Then hot glue them around the corner. Finally use hot glue, super glue (basically a TON of glue) to glue a strap-i used an old purse strap between the cloth and cardboard layers. I'm sure that was incredibly confusing and I'm sorry so if you have any questions please ask!
