a DS box just perfect for….
…two brownies for your favorite person. Or if they are really special, homemade fudge (YUM.)
Several months ago, I saw a small box made to hold a huge piece of chocolate, and I thought…well, I wouldn’t give anyone a piece of chocolate THAT big, but I might use it for something else. Then I got the idea for a miniature bakery box, something that reminded me of when my mother used to take me to an old fashioned bakery to buy treats when I was little. If you look on an earlier post, you will see the box I designed then in two sizes. Someone told me that they didn’t have the Calligraphy Collection cartridge, so tonight I redesigned this box with Plantin Schoolbook and Accent Essentials. If you don’t have Accent Essentials, you can take out the swirl on the top and substitute something else. I just thought the swirl made it look cute :). So, here is the result. NOTE: this box is NOT the Cupcake candle box that is 2 1/4″ inch high. I’ll redesign that soon so the flaps are not done with CC.
It has a 2 1/2 inch square base and is approximately 1 3/4″ high.
If you want to get fancy, you can tie it up with a pretty ribbon like this.
If I didn’t use ribbon, I would close it with clear circle tabs.
Either way, it will make a great small gift box and make someone you love very happy to receive it.
Here is the link to the Design Studio cut file for this box:
NOTE: My cut file has a second page that has 2 1/2″ square pieces that you can use to reinforce the bottom of the box. You can also use the page to cut the acetate for the top.
Materials I used:
One sheet of 12″ by 12″ double sided card stock (from the Martha Stewart Baby Girl Multimedia pad) You can also cut this box from an 8 1/2″ by 11″ sheet of card stock – just be careful how you place the sheet on your Cricut mat.
One 2 1/2″ square piece of acetate to tape underneath the swirl
Double stick tape to hold the flaps to the sides of the box (your choice of tape, depending on the weight of what’s inside)
Ribbon (optional) from Hallmark
Enjoy it, and please let me know what you made with this cut file!
