Hi there! Just discovered your site and am thoroughly amazed! Thank you for the great videos. Regarding this long envelope box, it says “customise the size really easy,” but I don’t see a conversion ratio. Are you able to post how to customize the size, please? (The size box I was trying to make right now is just shy of 6″ x 3″ (15 x 7.5 cm?) Thoughts? Thanks!
