GABLE BOX Gypsy file IS READY!!!!

oh my, thank you so much for being so patient!!! I know some of you have been waiting for this all day.

I thought today: wouldn't it be nice if I put score marks on the box (like they do in TTBM) and add a few things....

Well I went and messed up all the welding I had painstakingly finished on the box! Talk about frustration.

So, thanks to that glitch I am offering you a WONDERFUL GABLE BOX sans score marks. Better than nothing right? LOL!!!!

LADIES AND GENTS~ this is a 2 page file I am including instructions throughout this post on how to cut a project using more than 1 page. So please read carefully and observe the pictures and you should have no problem cutting and assembling this BEAUTIFUL GABLE BOX!!! who else is doing the happy dance with me? Can't you just picture this black little beauty all dressed up in Christmas' Finest? Oh yes, she will be beautiful....I'm going to glam and bling her out tomorrow. An after picture will be coming soon! LOL! ok, as promised instructions and pics:

After downloading your Gable Box gypsy file:
open up your file. You will see that I have included the list of cartridges that were used in the design. If you do not want these to cut out as well please delete these before you select the cut button.


Once your box has been cut, your gypsy will ask you what you want to do. DO NOT UNLOAD THE MAT!!!! Instead select Return to Design.


Once you are back on page one, look in the top right hand corner of your screen and touch your stylus to the number 1. It will change to the number 2. You are now on page 2 of the design. This page is for the handle cutouts and holes to keep the box closed.
(these holes had to be on this page as they were welded and my gypsy went wonky with the welding when I had it on page 1 originally).


Now all you have to do is select CUT, your mat is STILL loaded into the cricut at this point and the gypsy will only cut what is on page 2.


Now as I said previously, my score marks were a bust~I am going to try them again tomorrow and see where I get. For now I have shown a picture demonstrating where the scormarks should be. You will make 2 long horizontal marks using a long ruler. Then you will make 4 smaller score marks vertically. Use the photo as a guide.



Now that everything has been scored and folded/creased your box is ready for assembly. Start with it laying flat and lift up the right side of the box. Slide the right side of the box towards the bottom and have that side slip in behind the tab~as shown in photo.




Next fold the top piece down and tuck behind that tab as shown in the photo.


Lastly take your left side and slide it into the middle, use the photo as your guide :)



Don't forget to add ahesive to your box after you've tried DRY FITTING IT a couple times....practice putting the bottom together before you get the glue out ok??




And finally~the long awaited GABLE BOX!!!
Overall Dimensions: 5.25"Lx7"H(including the handles in this measurement)x5.25"D.

Don't forget I haven't dressed this box yet, but already you can see it has good bones and will turn into something wonderful!
Thanks for stopping by!!
