Box template for a square box

Here is an svg template for cutting a square box.   Set the height at 8.75 inches for a box that is a 2.75 inch cube.   The baby bug will cut a 1.75 inch box if you set the height at 5.5 inches.  The layered file has a layer for scoring and a layer with the window so that you can easily cut either a solid box or use your favorite shape for the window.

You can turn a blade upside down in the holder to score and it works well, but I’m not sure what that might do to your holder if you do it often.  I decided to try leaving the blade down, and I lowered the pressure setting all of the way down.  The settings will depend on your machine, but for cardstock I decreased the blade depth by one setting.  The fold lines were very sharp with this method, but were also a weak point where tears are a little more likely.

If you don’t use the scoring layer, score at the dashed lines shown below.

The download includes a layered svg for use with SCAL 2.0, a single layer svg for use with SCAL 1.0, and the png file for printing and hand cutting (this version won’t make a 2.75 inch box unless you have a wide format printer).  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.
