Cricut 3x3x4 Box


CricutMaker Hexagonal Box Material Requirements:


- Any Medium or Heavier Card Stock (Light works too, it just won't be as sturdy and would be more like a 1 time use).

- Scoring Tool (sold separately from the CricutMaker)

- Glue

- Ribbon or String

- Link to my Design:


I usually post on Sundays but this past weekend, I lost power due to the California outages! My heart goes out to all those affected by the devastating fires and are evacuating. It was definitely an experience sitting in candlelight and looking outside and only seeing pitch darkness.


My latest project was this pretty box. Do you ever need a box but don't want to run out to a store to get one? Well, here's a box design so you can just make one! It's sized to have the bottom part fit perfectly into a Cricut 12x12 sheet. You'll need additional cardstock for the lid though. Almost all of the projects I make can be easily resized in design space but not this one. I did try to make it bigger once and the lid dimensions were off so stick with this size unless you want to play around and do some trial and error.


The design also comes with a little gift tag you can use to dress up the box like below. I like to use heavier poster paper for it and use a ribbon to finish off the look.



Tips:

- If you're like me and like texture paper, put the texture side part down on the mat. This way the Cricut will score on the inside of your box and you can easily crease inward. It looks slightly better when you crease this way (for the perfectionists out there).

- Use hot glue gun for fast and easy assembly.

- This project cannot be easily resized. I tried to do it by selecting all and then dragging but the lid dimensions were off. You can do it, but keep in mind you will most likely have to play around with it.

- Use medium or heavier card stock for a longer lasting box.
