Gable Box With Heart Cutout

Hi Everyone
Happy Thursday To You

I hope you all are doing well!

Today I am sharing a super fun and easy box made with the Cricut Design Space. The box image is from the Tags Bags Boxes & More 2 cartridge, this is a free cart if you have the monthly subscription.

I made this the Stampin' Up! Kraft Card Stock, you can find that HERE. It is neutral and very durable and great for boxes. I left mine plain, but you can certainly jazz it up by stamping or inking around the edges.

For the heart cutout, I cut up a cello bag to use for the window. I made a tag with the heart that was cut away, tied it into a bow and hung it on the side of the box. Great for a tag!

I wrote the phrase "I love you" using the DonJuan font (another free one), and the had the machine draw it out using the silver marker that came with the Explore. You can add whatever text you would like here, I just thought it went well with the heart. (plus it is for my hubby)

Here is a side view of the box showing the tag all tied up with a pretty bow, using the Stampin' Up! Linen Thread. I inked around the edges, so it would not get lost on the box.

You can see the video HERE ON YOUTUBE or below:

  4. Hello Stacy
    Loved your video on the Gable Box with heart cut ou. I tried making the box and chose the gable box according to your video. I went to ungroup the box, but it wouldn't ungroup it. It appears to be a one piece box. I don't know if there was a modification to the box since your video. Also, I tried enlarging the box the same as yours because I wanted the larger box also. It wouldn't allow the box size stayed the box was too large for the mat. I checked the measurements to see and they were small enough to be cut but kept getting same message. Would you please give me the measurements you used in the video? The video was March 2015.
    Thank you for your video and other videos you publish.
