Candy Box Cutting File

I’m still having a great time with my Silhouette cutter.  It kind of boggles my mind that it can cut out these tiny little details perfectly – its awesome!

I created this box cutting file to hold a standard Hershey bar.  I’m actually quite tickled with the latched shaped like a butterfly 🙂

The box is very easy – just cut it out using your electronic cutter of choice (the download contains 4 different file formats: .studio for Silhouette, .svg, .dxf, and .ai) and fold on the dashed lines.  I added a little glue to the side flaps – but the box actually holds together without the glue once it is folded.

Add your chocolate bar and fold the wings of the butterfly up.

Fold the flaps over and feed the butterfly through the slot.  Open the wings to hold the box closed. 

The box can be made with card stock, scrapbook papers, or even printed digital papers.  And of course you can embellish the box however you like.  I printed one of the papers from the Folkart Love kit here – and added embellishments made with the print and cut files included in that kit.

Check out the cute box Cathy made!  She used the Folkart Love kit too – and she glittered the butterfly – you gotta love a bling-y butterfly!

Happy Crafting!
