How to cut the template

Cut the template with cutting machines such as Cricut or Silhouette cameo. You can also cut the template with scissors or craft knife.


- You'll need to upload the SVG file in Cricut Design space.

- If you have a scoring wheel or scoring stylus, make sure to use the SVG files with solid lines and remember to set up the score lines, before sending to cut. Check out my tutorial to learn how to set up score lines in cricut design design space.

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


- If you use a silhouette machine, make sure to upload the DXF file in silhouette studio.


- I recommend using the PDF file to cut by hand. The PDF file template comes in Letter size paper.

- To make the shaker box, print out the template on card stock. Note: Youll need to print out the acetate window template, shaker template and embellisments templates on paper, then trace onto acetate and card stock.

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

- The template comes in a zipped folder, you need to unzip the files to your computer.

- If you want to unzip the files to your cell phone or tablet, you will probably need an app to extract the files.

- You can use 65 lb card stock up to 100 lb, but I recommend using 80 lb card stock because the material is thicker than 65 lb cardstock.

- To add patterns to the embellisments, I have a tutorial on how to add patterns in cricut design space.

- When you resize the box in your cutting machine software, make sure to group all the pieces of the template, Check out my cricut tutorial.
