Trim down your base paper, mine is blue to 21cm x 16cm and score it at 5cm on both sides. Cut 4 squares each in yellow, measuring 4,5cm and blue squares measuring 4cm. Adhere them together and center them on the box.
Check out the layout I created, it shows exactly which parts you have to cut off (turqouise lines).
Use an office hole punch to punch two holes into the top "wings" - that's where you're going to put the paperstraw through.
Using a bigger circle punch, for instance 3/4" or 1". punch half a hole into the back of the box, that makes it easier to open it.
Now it's time to stick it all together using liquid glue or double sided tape. Decorate it as you wish and you're done!
