Tutorial: Peaked Roof cupcake boxes for your Silhouette cutting machine

This week I uploaded peaked roof cup cake/gift boxes into the Silhouette online store. You will find a few options within the files to create a box that is just right for you. There are two options for the bottom of the box. One would be better for cupcakes, and has a dip on one side so the cup cake can go in and out of the box easily. You will want to cut the cupcake base holder if you use this option. The other box bottom does not have a dip and would be better as a gift box. There are optional contrasting panels that you can use underneath the cut part of the design. You can use the box without these panels as well. The elephant box above is an example of using contrasting panels on the sides and on the peaked roof. The other boxes above only use panels underneath the roof.

For these projects you will need this Equipment:
A Silhouette Electronic Cutting machine. This file works great with both the Silhouette Cameo and the Silhouette Portrait cutting machines. If you use the portrait machine, you will need to rearrange the pieces to fit in your cutting area. To move the pieces around individually, ungroup the file under edit.

For those of you who are new to my blog, and may not have heard about the Silhouette electronic cutting machine(the machine I used to cut this file out,) I put together a product review at this link. You can read other's reviews of the machine here. This machine will change the way you craft, and most importantly, you will get lost in the fun of it all!

Adhesive:
Glue (use a good paper glue like Tombow mono liquid glue it will not warp your paper.)
-and/or-
Double Sided adhesive. (I use a Scotch ATG 714 gun. Scotch got smart and made a similar one for crafters the Scotch Cat 085--it's quite a bit less $ than the 714. I like that it has a seemingly endless roll of adhesive. It saves a ton of money in the long run when compared to little craft adhesive dispensers. Especially if you buy the adhesive reels in bulk.)

You will also need these Silhouette Files:
(links will appear here as they appear in the silhouette store.)

Here are some step shots to guide you through the assembly process:

From time to time I make recommendations of products that I love to use, or products that I have designed. Occasionally, manufacturers send me products to play with. They have not obligated me to show them on my blog or review them. I only make positive remarks about those things that I truly love and enjoy to use. Everyone's personal experience with various products may be different, as we all use things in different ways. I am not compensated for these remarks, and merely pass on my opinion to you as a reader. I hope you find my opinions valuable.
