With Easter right around the corner, why not make this cute bunny box. What a cute way to give a treat. Both young and old will get a kick out of it. You can make them in different sizes and colors. Personalize them and they make a great place setting name tag.

Many of the items I use in posts are provided by the manufacturers to promote their products.

I used Stardream Metallic Card Stock in Crystal for the box and Astrobright in Pulsar Pink for the ears and nose. CutCardStock’s Stardream line is one of my favorite card stocks with a bit of metallic, it has a great look.

I cut the SVG file out on a Cricut Maker. Placing two different pieces of card stock on the mat, I adjusted the file in Design Space. This made it easier to cut once instead of twice.

As a reminder when cutting, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut. The materials are minimal for this project making it so easy to make. It would be fun to get the kids involved.

I cut the whisker with scissors from a scrap of black and chose to draw in the eyes instead of cutting them out.

The video tutorial below shows how to easily put the pieces together.

This view shows the size of the box that can be made from an 8.5 x 11″ sheet of card stock. Just the perfect size for a treat or a group of jelly beans!

Snowflake Box :: Free SVG

Make this festive snowflake box for your holiday gift giving with the free SVG file.

Just in time for your holiday gift-giving is this free SVG file to make a Snowflake Box. Or if you need a plain box, just remove the design element and you have a standard square box template. The great thing about this box design is that you can make it and then store it flat until you need it.

I used Habanero cardstock.

cricut maker

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker at a setting of 100#. The cardstock is 80# cover weight but cuts really well at a slightly larger setting.

The SVG file comes with cut and score lines. You will need to set the lines to score before cutting. The file comes with a square shape to insert into the top of the box. However, I just freehand cut mine to save time. I suggest using wet glue to insert the top piece as well as the seal on the side of the box. It tends to hold better than other options.

Here you can see the box together and open ready for the gift to be placed inside. You really don’t need anything additional. The box will hold itself close and since there is a decoration on the box, no ribbon is needed either.

Above is a close-up of the snowflake decoration on the top of the box. I think adding some decorative gems to the circles could make this extra special. You might also consider using acetate or vellum instead of cardstock for the insert.
