2 5 7 10 box with cutout window

2 5 7 10 box with cutout and saying from Country Life Cartridge


I love these little boxes but thought it would be cuter with a window. Here is a great tutorial on cutting the box out. Once I had the shape of the box cut out, I marked the spot for the window on the scored rectangle that will be the front of the box. Be sure to allow enough room for the flap to fold over. Next, adhere the flat paper to the Cricut mat. Be sure to check which way the shape you want will cut. Bring the blade to the mark made on the front of box. Hit Center Point button. This is where the center of your shape will be. I used the strawberry on pg. 56 cut at 2 inches. Cut shape. Unload paper, remove from mat, and turn over. Use a piece of clear cellophane and adhere over cutout. I used a piece from a cellophane gift bag I cut for a different project. Fold all scored pieces and glue following directions from Splitcoast Stampers. Decorate as you like. I found strawberry candies to fill the box, cut the sentiment from pg. 56 at 1”, glittered it, glued it to a 1 x 2 3/4 piece of brown cs which I ran through the distressed stripes Cuttlebug folder. attached two pink brads, pop dot attached it to the box. I finished by stamping the U R over the strawberry. Hope you like it! I can’t wait to give it away as a cute little gift!
