Here is an svg for a cupcake stand or small 3D table by request. I cut two of each piece from heavy cardstock for mine, and it was surprisingly sturdy once I glued it together. I used clear glue along all of the places where one piece touched another. Since I didn’t have any cupcakes handy, the elephant is standing in for one.
This svg file can be used in either version of SCAL. This file is for personal use only. Feel free to link to this post, but the file is not to be shared or distributed in any way.

Here is a 3D soccer ball by request. You need to cut the black file twice for 12 pentagons and the white file four times for 20 hexagons total. Assemble the pieces using a strong adhesive. Start with a black piece (or whatever color you choose) and surround it with white pieces. Build the ball up from there, making sure that the black pieces only touch white pieces. The files will make a ball that is about 4.25 inches when the file height is set to 3.86 inches.
If you are using SCAL1, the files were made so that they will be correctly proportioned if you set the height the same for both files.
The download includes two layered svg files for use with SCAL2 and two single layer svg files. These files are for personal use only. Feel free to link to this post, but the files are not to be shared or distributed in any way.

Carol, from http://extremecards.blogspot.com/ created the original files for this project. She has the DXF and PDF versions available here. My SVG version (posted with Carol’s permission) has layers for scoring, and separate layers for the box and the bow for use with SCAL2. The file can also be used without the solid score lines by hiding the scoring layers before importing into SCAL.
- Score, then cut all of the pieces.
- Fold on the score lines as shown below.
- Insert the tabs into the slots on the opposite side of the box. Open the wings on the tabs to lock them into place.
- Insert the ribbon tabs into the slots on the top of the present and open the wings.
This is how it should look from the top.
And this is how it should look from the bottom.
- Insert the present top tabs into the slots on the present box and open the wings.
- Gently flatten out the present.
- Glue the ribbon tails onto the top of the package, making sure that they are not glued to the sides of the package.
- Put strong adhesive on the large flaps at the bottom of the present and place the edges of the flaps into the card crease. Close the card and press firmly into place.
- Here is how it looks after being glued to the card.
The download is a layered svg for use with SCAL 2.0. This file is for personal use only. Feel free to link to this post, but the file is not to be shared or distributed in any way.
