Don't bother too much with what the box is looks like, only the upper (for the light) and the front (for taking pics) side should be cut away.

Take the blue paper and fix it with some tape. First at the head and next at the bottom. You won't see it on the pics

Take your sandpaper and tear away around 2", so you will get a nice dune looking background. 

Using the glue, fix the strips of sandpaper along the edges and cover the base with sandpaper too.
