AH HA!! Pillow Box Finished!! AND with Score Marks!!

Wow, this box was tough.

For this box you won't have to worry about having the cartridges I used to design this project. Why do you ask? HOW could that possibly be? Don't you have to own the carts used in order to cut?

Well, the answer to this is: I used ONLY Gypsy Font and Wanderings!!! That's right (I'm so excited about this!) all gypsy owners can download and use this file! Can you say WOO HOO?! One more time! Let me hear you say: WOO HOO!!

okay, on to the details: Overall dimensions of the box shown in picture~ 3.75"L(approx.)x2.75W"(approx.)x.75"H(height was measured with it laying flat on my desk).

NOTES:

Project designed on a 12x12 mat~woo hoo! don't have to go and buy a bigger mat :)

*Box and Score marks are grouped together* so when you enlarge EVERYTHING ENLARGES.

I did this for 2 reasons: the first being when I enlarged the pillow box I had one heck of a time lining up the score marks afterwards on their own.

Grouping it all together (after I welded the pillow box on it's own) allowed me to resize and keep the proportions correct.

The second reason I did this is for those of you who wish to have NO score marks. Just double tap on the pieces and delete. This will not affect the welding on the pillow box whatsoever. Don't forget you can always modify it to suit your taste.

So without further ado~A pic of my TEST cut....free of bugs and with wonderful score marks to show you where the flaps are supposed to be scored (okay, I'll admit it~those score marks are really for me because I kept messing up my scoring with the flaps LOL!!)

First pic I circled the score marks so you could all see them :) I did my best to make them as skinny and small as I could, using just the gypsy carts made it tough...





I hope you enjoy this file, please leave a simple Thank you if you download this file - this took a long time to make :)

I've added a file with a heart cutout for Valentines Day! Enjoy it HERE.
