Hat Box Tutorial – DIY craft project for electronic cutting machines

This is a step by step tutorial to create the charming little paper hat boxes I just released.
It is cut on a Silhouette Cameo, but it should work also for similiar cutters and software which is svg compatible.

You can get the svg file here:

Tips:
– cut the files twice with matching paper and combine them, so you get directly two beautiful bicolored boxes
– edge blending (coloring the cut white paper edges and holes) gives the box an even more realistic and used look.

Be prepared the first box will be a bit tricky and fiddling until you know how to hold everything best.
Depending on the thickness of your paper the parts are fitting more or less tight. You might have to adjust the parts a little bit in width.

The second box will be much easier, big promise! And from the third it will be a breeze and so much fun.
I guess your friends and family will rib them out of your hands.

Much success and please contact me if you need help!
