Pop of pink stepper box

Hi everyone I've just finished making this project and I'm so happy with how it turned out.
I got the inspiration from Debbie Henderson and then I adapted the design to what I wanted.
See the pic below for measurements of cardstock and dsp.

First take the largest piece of cardstock and attach the 10 panels of dsp between each of the score lines on both sides of the cardstock. This will be the basis of our box.
The next instructions will be the same for the 7 x 7 cardstock and the 4 pieces of 6 x 6.
On the back of the card draw a line from corner to corner to form an 'x'. Then staring at one corner fold the point up to the centre of the cross, then holding this in place fold it over again until it's flush with centre line. ( see pics below) 

Next at one corner cut up 2 squares either side of the 2 small triangles and repeat on opposite side. 

It should look like the above pic. Next I used tombow to glue pieces together. On opposite corner to where we cut, put glue on two triangles and row of squares and then lift up to form a wall then fold glued panels down on itself see pic below.

Once that's all done you can now attach the rest of dsp. The 2 x 2 pieces are liners to go inside the drawers (made from 6 x 6 card) then the 2 1/4 squared piece is for top of the lid. The 4 tiny pieces of dsp are for the front of the drawers.
On the 1st piece of cardstock that we done, line up one of the drawers on the 2nd panel from the left at the bottom of that panel. I then position a drawer on the very last panel at the top. It's then easier to place the 2 in between. I used strong red tape to attach these.
I stamped 4 of the flamingos from pop of paradise stamp set on white cardstock in versamark and heat embossed in gold, then fussy cut these out and attach to panels that you will see once box is closed up. I also stamped the hello image from same stamp set and embossed with gold powder and attached to lid of box with a dimensional. Finally use some gold ribbon to toe around the box lid.
Hope you like what you see and any questions feel free to email me.
Catch ya later
