Weekly Wrap #80 : DIY Citrus Stripe Boxes

Weekly Wrap

Citrus Slices SVG + Studio + Download Box Template

It’s time for more fun with a box that you may remember from my owl favor box and Father’s Day shirt and tie gift box projects. It really is a versatile box; you can dress it up for most any occasion, and before all is said and done, I probably will!

This time around, I wanted to do something that said “summer”, and I created citrus slice templates and cut out loads of them using my trusty die-cutting machine. Then, I attached them to the boxes using double-sided adhesive and, voil√†, citrus stripe boxes!

Free SVG Citrus Slices

You can use the citrus slices in scrapbooking projects or to embellish handmade cards, or use them to create paper details (napkin rings, cupcake toppers, drinking straw embellishments) for summertime parties. I’ve zipped up free downloadable SVG, GSD, DXF, and Silhouette Studio files (half slices and full slices) for those of you who have digital cutters, as well as a PDF with all of the files if you don’t have a die-cutter and would like to cut the slices out by hand.

Also included in the download are SVG, GSD, DXF, and PDF versions of the box template (the PDF has instructions for assembling the box), and I created a Silhouette Studio file of the box template that includes perforations. Oh, and I’m also sharing the citrus-colored striped papers so you can make citrus striped boxes, too. Lots of fun stuff going on in this download!
