These dinky cubes (4.5cm/1-3/4in) are great as party favours - they are stackable and fun. They are decorated with a seasonal ski sweater motif. If you put a ribbon hanging loop in a cube corner, then you have a tree ornament!
I have given you two versions - .pdf printable, or print-and-cut for a Silhouette Curio machine. The Curio will emboss the fold lines and cut out the template pieces for you.
Here are your free templates:
|The .pdf printable is all-in-one.|
|The Silhouette Curio cube is in two pieces.|
Cut the box out (photocopier card is ideal), score the fold lines with a fine-point embossing tool and a small ruler, crease the folds, join the one flap to complete the box.
Silhouette Curio Version1 Open the file. The registration marks are turned on. Print the box portion on the mat on to photocopier card.
2 Place the print-out on the embossing mat. Move the folding guide over the box print-out, with edges aligned. Choose Advanced cutting.Place the fine embossing tool in the righthand carriage. Emboss = blue. Select Cardstock and the fine embossing tool. Send to cut - and the fold lines are embossed.
3 Re-insert the template into the Curio. Adjust the cut settings. Purple = cut, Ratchet Blade in the lefthand carriage. Deselect the blue. Select the purple. Choose Cardstock and Ratchet Blade. Send to the machine.
4 Repeat this process for the second half of the box.
5 Join the two box pieces together, as shown above. Crease the folds. Join the end tab - your box is complete.
If you have the Silhouette Curio Long Base, you can enlarge the templates to make bigger boxes.
