This time, the shaker piece is outside the box! So there's much space to fill the box with more goodies!

As always you can use the template with your Cricut, Silhouette or you scissors! 

So without further ado, let's see the supplies for the box!

Use a cutting machines such as Cricut or Silhouette cameo to cut the template or use scissors and craft knife to cut by hand:


- 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 with dashed lines in silhouette studio.

- I recommend using the PDF file to cut by hand. The PDF file template fits in Letter size paper and A4 size paper.


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

2. Trace on cardstocks and acetate.

3. Score along the lines using a bone folder.

4. Cut the template with scissors and craft knife.


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

  • Mac: just double click the zipped folder to unzip it. 
  • Windows PC, right click the zipped folder and choose Extract Here or Extract All.\
  • Phone or tablet: You will probably need an app to extract the files.

- For best results, I recommend using 80 lb cardstock, but you could also use 65 lb cardstock.
