Shaker Gable Box


Materials needed:

- Shaker Gable Box with window Template

- Card stocks (80 lb up to 110 lb card stock)

- Acetate sheet

- Strong craft glue (Here's a similar glue)

- Cutting machine or Scissors and bone folder

- Sequins, confetti or beads

- Double sided foam tape (Optional)

How to cut the template:

There are two ways to cut the template:


- You can use a cutting machine such as Cricut or Silhouette cameo. 

- I recommend using SVG file for Cricut and DXF file with your silhouette machine.

- Templates include solid score lines and dashed score lines:

Solid score lines are for those who have a scoring wheel or scoring stylus. Be sure to set the score lines on your cutting machine, before sending to cut.  

Dashed score lines are intended to be cut, so you don’t need any scoring tool.


-  I recommend using the PDF files, If you cut by hand.

- Before making the shaker gable box, print out the template on card stock. Note: Youll need to print out the acetate window template on paper, then trace onto acetate.

-  Also, you can print all the pieces of the template on paper, then trace onto card stock and acetate and cut them out.



The files come in a zipped folder, you need to unzip or extract the files to your computer.

On a Mac, just double click the zipped folder to unzip it. On a Windows PC, right click the zipped folder and choose Extract Here or Extract All.

If you want to extract the files to your mobile device, you will probably need an app to extract the files

I recommend using cardstock from 80 lb / 216 gsm to 110 lb / 298 gsm. 

You could also use sequins, beads or confetti to make the shaker piece.


Find the Shaker Gable Box with window template in my Etsy store. The template comes in SVG, DXF, PNG and PDF file and it can be used in cutting machines such as Cricut or Silhouette cameo.  The template is a blank template, so it does not include the images or pattern. You can decorate the box with the theme of your choice.
