Shaker Acetate Gable Box Template for Cricut and Silhouette - Favor box template

shaker acetate gable box


Today, I'm going to show a new design of gable box template! 

This shaker gable box has become my favorite because it's a clear box with 360° shaker! So you can decorate all the sides of the box inside and out and it'll always be a shaker box!

Also, the size of the box is a little bit of large, so you can fill it with a lot of goodies!

How to cut the template

Use your 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.

- 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. 

- To use the ultra fine tip bottle, I filled the bottle with 70% silicone glue approx and 30% rubbing alcohol approx. I combined them to make the glue more liquid to pass through the ultra fine tip.

- If you want to resize the SVG file in Cricut design space, you need to group all the pieces.
