Materials needed:

- Silicone glue (Similar glue)

- Acetate sheet 

- Card stock ( At least 65 lb up to 80 lb card stock) 

- Cutting machine or scissors

- Bone folder

- Scissors

- Confetti and sequins

- Paper straw or ribbon

- Optional: Double sided foam tape

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 with Cricut and DXF file with Silhouette Cameo.

- Templates include solid score lines and dashed score lines:

Solid  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 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 favor box, print out the shaker box 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.
