HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO
STEP 1: DOWNLOAD THE FREE SVG FILE
The first thing you’ll need to do is get the free SVG file you’ll use for this project. I keep all the SVG files I use for the projects I make in my SVG Library. These SVG files work with Cricut and Silhouette machines, as well as many others. This library is open to everyone and is free! You can access the library here. Look for the file called Christmas Cookie Box BA2106. It will be listed under the Craftmas 2022 Category-Day 6.
STEP 2: CUT THE PIECES FOR THE BOX
Open the design in your software program. Keep everything grouped together and resize the design. If you resize the height to 10″ tall, you’ll be able to make a box that is about 2.75″ x 2.75″ x 5.5″. You can go bigger or smaller if you want. It just depends on what you want to put inside. Once everything is sized correctly, cut out the box with your Cricut or Silhouette. I used Christmas Cardstock for this project.
You’ll want to cut the rectangle piece out of a clear transparency sheet or something similar.
Once the cardstock is finished cutting, remove it from the cutting mat. You’ll want to slightly bend the cutting mat and carefully pull off the cardstock.
STEP 3: ASSEMBLE THE BOX
Star by folding along all the perforation lines.
Flip the cardstock over and add some glue around the Christmas tree.
Place the clear rectangle over the center of the tree. Make sure it doesn’t go over any of the perforation lines. Let that dry for a few minutes.
Add some glue onto the side tabs.
Attach the two larger sections together to form a box.
Once the glue is dry, you can add some glue on the tabs for the bottom.
Push the bottom up into the box.
You can reach your hand inside the box to press the tabs against the sides.
For the lid, you’ll just add some glue to each tab and attach it to the side.
Thread some ribbon, twine, or raffia through the holes on top.
You can also add some cute Christmas embellishments to finish it off.
Fill with cookies or other Christmas candy and this project is complete.
