Hey Everyone, how about we start the week with a freebie? :-)
One of the kids' favorite things from our recent road trip is the box from Pâtisserie Für Elise. When we were at the store, Hubby had bought each girl a slice of cake and they loved their bakery boxes so much, they insisted on keeping them long after the treats are gone. They stored knick-knacks in their boxes and have been carrying them as if they were purses. I was so amused I decided to make a smaller version for them. So while they were watching t.v. the other day, I sat down to make this Pâtisserie Für Elise-inspired box.
The assembly of this box is very straightforward. Since the whole thing comes in one piece, there is no gluing required. To make the box, first download the file from the link at the end of this post. Use your cutter and cutting program to cut out the template.
Lightly crease the score/fold lines.
No gluing is needed to assemble the box. Instead, just "hook" the two sides together.
There are two notches by the sides of the handle. These were designed to lock the two flaps so that the box stays closed.
The finished box measures approximately 3.5" x 2.75" x 1.75". Fill it with candies or any sweets your heart desires.
I used Make-the-Cut to design the template but made the files in 3 formats: .mtc, .studio, and .svg.
I have also included a SVG format for those of you who do not use MTC or Silhouette Studio. By the way, if you prefer using the SVG with MTC, please remember to import at Actual and 72 DPI.
Enjoy and have fun cutting! :-)
