Do you love working with SVG files? As a graphic designer, I love creating SVG files, and I will be sharing projects, including SVG files, with you twice a month. Hi, I am Janet from Try it – Like it – Create it, and I have a Snowflake Box to share with you as a part of the CutCardStock design team.
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 and cut it 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.
