In this video, you will learn how to use a web site called Template Maker for creating a Gift Box with your Brother ScanNCut. We will create a box which holds one or two lipstick pens and/or treats. There are so many different types of boxes you can create for FREE on the Template Maker site. The Template Maker templates are easy to customize and once you learn how to use this site, you will be returning there to make quick and easy boxes.
First, I share the dimensions (listed below) for creating a gift box. One you customize your box or make one for a gift of your choice, you download it. I share how to download the SVG file and import it into Canvas Workspace where you can edit it further. In this example, I shared how to turn the cutting line into a solid black line and how to change the style of the score lines. I also shared how to group and align the Gift Box template and then how to duplicate it and rotate it so that you can cut 2 of these Gift Boxes on the same mat. After transferring the file wirelessly to your Brother Scan and Cut, you can move, resize or duplicate it as needed. Then, you can cut the boxes out and assemble them. In this tutorial, I shared how to cut out boxes with the SDX125 and with the CM350. I shared examples of boxes cut out with the Pleased as Punch designer series paper and From my Heart designer series paper by Stampin’ Up!
After you customize and create your boxes, add gifts or treats and embellish them with twine or ribbon. I hope you will give this Template Maker a try. Even if you don’t use Canvas Workspace, you can still transfer the cutting file to your Brother ScanNCut using a USB stick (thumb drive) or USB cable from your PC.
