it’s a small world after all
I finally did it! I converted one of my box design files into a svg file.
For those of you who design in Inkscape or Illustrator, this may not seem like a big deal. But I design in SCAL 2 and it hasn’t been easy for me to export files as svgs that have overlapping elements within the design. I finally figured out a way to do that the other night, and here is my first file.
Here is a photo that has one of my original short gable boxes on the left and a new box that I cut from the svg file on the right. The left box is 4 1/2 inches tall. The right box is 2 3/4 inches tall.
Here is another photo that show a side view of both boxes.
You may ask why would you bother to create a tiny box? And, what would you put in it? How about a single piece of delicious chocolate, a pair of dazzling earrings, or a sparkling gold chain? The list is endless. I love gifts that are uniquely packaged and must be opened in order to reveal the surprise inside.
Several people had written to me and asked if I could convert my box design files to svgs so they could cut it on a smaller mat or create custom sizes. Now I can, so you can.
Please help yourself…and enjoy! I’d love to see what you make with this file.
I’ll do more conversions and post them soon. Thanks for putting a bug in my ear and an idea in my head. I love solving puzzles and this was a fascinating one.
