Unusual Box 5" x 5" , holds a Set of Cards and Envelopes

Good evening folks,

i have designed this unusual box tonight, that features a diagonally split closure and a string closure that allows to wrap the string in endless variety to achieve pretty wrappings!
The box measures 5" x 5" and is 1/2" deep.
The cards are 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"and i made the envelopes with the envelope punch board.

The card fronts aren´t decorated yet a i ran out of time but will be decorated tomorrow.
To make this box, i only used 2 pieces of emerald envy card stock,
one was 11" x 7" and the other one 5 1/2" x 5".

The scoring on the short side of the bigger card stock is 1/2" and 1" on both sides and at 5", 5 1/2" and 10 1/2" on the long side of the card stock. 
The smaller piece of card stock is scored at 1/2" on the longer side.

How the card stock is being cut for the diagonal split is very difficult to explain just in words, so if you are interested, i will rather do a tutorial for you instead of trying to put it in words here... it won´t be clear anyway.

Now i hope you like the unusual and individual closure of this box. just drop me a comment of you fancy a tutorial.
Thanks for dropping by tonight and have a good night!
