The cardstock cuts I did:
Colonial White Cardstock- 9x5 1/2, Score the long side @ 2 1/8, 4 1/4, 6 3/8, 8 1/2. Then turn and score the short side @ 2 3/4 thereby dividing it in half. Cut to the halfway fold on the score lines on the top half of the paper. The end score, at 8 1/2 inches is then cut across at the halfway fold leaving a small tab on the bottom half. Fold at score lines, apply a strong adhesive to tab and form into a box.
Laughing Lola paper cut 5 1/2 x 2 1/8, and stamped white cardstock 5 x 1 3/4 inches. This is used on the outside back panel of box, not seen when box is opened.
Flap pieces cut from Laughing Lola @ 2x 2 3/4 inches.
Center Divider is Colonial White cardstock cut 3 1/8x 3 1/8, scored @ 1/2, and 2 5/8. Then turn sideways and cut in half. Fold at the score lines, one forward, one back like a Z. Apply adhesive to the Z flaps with so that the adhesive on the front on one side, the back of the other.( Or lay flat and apply adhesive to one flap while up, then turn over and apply to other flap while up.) To apply to inside of box, align Z tab with back of box in corner and top of tab even with top of box, or one side. Make sure the other tab is open and close the box flat. Press and when you open you will see that the other tab is exactly where it needs to be. Repeat for other divider. This is really easy if you watch Frenchie's video.
