Jewelry Box

I had a lot of fun making this little box.  The pattern is from SVGCuts and is part of the Playful Parlor SVG kit which contains several patterns.  I imported the box SVG into Make the Cut and copied it to a second page, making sure they were in the exact "x" and "y" positions on both pages.  On the first page, I removed the inside dotted lines.  On the second page I deleted the outline.  Using the first page I cut out the box and without removing the mat, I changed the blade for a stylus with a ball about a 1/16" across, inserting it in my Amy Chomas adjustable holder for my Cameo.  Then, I 'cut' the second page twice using more force than I normally use.  This created wonderful score lines.  The box is very easy to fold and it only takes one 8.5 x 11" piece of card stock to make. 

I used scrap pieces from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl to cut the side and bottom panels.  I imported these on page 3 and page 4.

The file contains a bow I didn't make and does not contain a decorative bottom for the inside.  I added that with a piece 2 3/4" x 3 5/8".  It makes the box a little more sturdy as well as provides visual interest inside.  The leaves on top were cut from Meadow Leaf die and the lovely rose was a get well gift from KarensFunBlog.   This box measures about 3 3/4" wide, 2 1/2" deep and 2" high without the decorations.  I imported it into MTC with "use actual" checked and at 90 dpi.  There is a YouTube video on the entire set with construction instructions.  The birdcage file is especially cute.  This was my first purchased file from SVGCuts but it won't be my last and I credit this blog entry with pointing me in the right direction.
