brownies…mmmmmmm (Design Studio)

One of the many creative people on the Cricut Message Board wrote and asked me to design a brownie box.  She sent me the URL of a website where I could see what she and a few of her friends wanted me to do.  So here is my version of this box, with a few alterations.

Brownie box AI designed the box to hold a 3″ square brownie that is up to 1  1/4″ in height.  This will give you some room in case you like extra thick brownies or decide to add icing (yes, please.)

The Design Studio cut file uses only George and Basic Shapes.  If you don’t own that cartridge, I suggest you invest in it.  The cart has so many shapes that are essential to any type of designing, and all in one place.

In my opinion, the best thing about this design is that you don’t really need any tape to fasten the sides.  Here is a photo of tBrownie box Che eight score lines, in case they are not obvious.

After scoring, you can put together the box as follows:

Fold in the tabs toward the center, fold over the top and bottom flaps, then fold over the side flaps – and you’re done, except for filling the box and putting a ribbon around it or sealing it with a single sticker on the top.

SUPPLIES YOU WILL NEED:

One 12″ by 12″ sheet of double sided card stock from the Martha Stewart Create Paper Pad, available at Walmart.

Tape (optional)

Closure (ribbon, sticker, seal, or even a tiny strip of Velcro)

I hope you like this, and feel free to use it for anything that will fit in the space.

Here is the DS cut file:

Guess I’d better go buy some brownie mix.

  1. I would love to see this in scal.

  2. Cute box, can you please convert to SCAL? My daughter was in the Miss Texas pageant this year and plans to compete next year also. She had 8 princesses, and they left little presents for them all through the pageant week. This would be great for next year.

  3. That is so darling. Love it. Bibi, that is such a great idea!

    Love to see a scal. Can you do it easily or does it start from scratch???

    Great blog!

    • DS and SCAL do not talk to one another, but I can take the measurements from my DS file and use them with the same shapes (elements) that are available in SCAL. In fact, I should have the SCAL version of the box up as soon as I can do a test cut.

  4. Love your boxes but would love to have them in svg!
