Did you know the Silhouette offers a bunch of 3D designs in their online design studio? When I wanted to take some of the truffles to a few ladies at church, I needed a cute way to package them. I just cut the design into cardstock, folded on the perforation, and done! Obviously, box on the left is folded shut – box on the right is opened and dumped artistically on it’s side so you can see what’s in the package:
Now, I love my Silhouette, but I’m not going to claim it’s perfect. It gives me problems occasionally with cardstock – this time it came unstuck and then a piece got caught in the machine (does this happen to anyone else??). But I noticed it right away, stopped the machine, and cut the last line by hand, so crisis averted.
LOVE these little boxes – makes 2 truffles seem like a really special treat (and with only 2 needed per box, leaves more for me!)
