Gum Box/Notecard Box Printable Template

Lately I’ve been busy playing with my new Cricut and having fun with Make the Cut software.  The other day I was admiring the packaging on my new favorite gum, Extra Dessert Delights Mint Chcolate Chip.  I thought, why not make a box like that to hold a little notepad.  I originally planned to make one for sticky-notes but I’m too cheap.  I bought 200 index cards at the dollar store and if you cut them in half they fit perfectly in my little box.  I had fun adding touches to my boxes and I think they will make cute party favors for the next birthday party.  I also thought you could decorate it with a playing cards theme and use the index cards for score cards.  Or, if you don’t want to put notecards in the box I’m sure there are several other uses for it.  Included in the .zip is a .pdf, a .svg, and a .mtc (Make-the-Cut) file.  If you don’t have an electronic cutter you will want to open and print the .pdf, then cut it with scissors and assemble.  I would love to see what you do with them!

Thank you very much.
I never saw a cut machine, only on videos and I would love to see how it works.

Thank you so much! I'll have to get my machine set up - haven't done it yet, but those are so cute - it'll give me inspiration!

Thank you so much for sharing your creativity. I was really disgusted with Cricut when they sued Make-the-cut and how their latest software does not work with Cricuts. Cricut then came out with their version of a "design your own" machine but it is outrageously expensive and does not have the flexibility of MTC. Fortunately I have an older version of MTC and can still use with my Cricut. As soon as I can sell my Cricut I'd like to look into getting the Zing.

Thank you so much for this. I love note paper holders and the ones that you made are fantastic. I can't wait to cut these (on my way to doing that now!)

How cute is this? I no longer have my Cricut (took up too much room!) But I sure can use the PDF to cut my own. Thanks so much!

Thank you. I'm starting to play with this sort of thing - not with a Cricut or anything, but it's still fun.
