DIY Flash Card Box - Maritza Lisa

 

Lots of great deals happening right now at Silhouette. Annnd…not sure if you know that the shapes in the Fun & Games section of the online store are on sale? Fun, right? Lots of cool stuff to download and make. On that note, I recently purchased the 3d Crayon Box (8 Crayons) shape. This shape is obviously awesome for crayons, but I had all these little flash cards that my younger son received from his Kindergarten orientation, so in an effort to organize, I downloaded the shape, resized the box and customized the front labels to store them… Do you need to organize your flash cards with a flash card box too?


The What

The How

Step 1: Open the 3d Crayon Box in Silhouette Studio, and ungroup the shape. Resize your shape, so that the inner most rectangle is big enough to hold your flash cards

Step 2: Update your labels (I used the American Typewriter font)

Step 3: Adjust the cut settings and blade to cardstock, then load your mat and cardstock, and send to cut. Once you have folded (at the dashed lines) and glued, you can fill your new boxes with flash cards galore!
