How to cut the milk box template:

Cutting machines:


- 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.


- Upload the DXF file in Silhouette studio.

- I recommend using the DXF file with dashed lines.

By hand:

- To cut by hand, I recommend using the PDF file. 

- The PDF file template comes in Letter size paper.


1. Print all the pieces of the template on white paper. 

2. Trace on card stocks and acetate.

3. Score along the lines using a bone folder. 

4. Cut the template with scissors. TIP: Use a craft knife to cut the small pieces.
