Birdcage favor box svg file

Today I finally had a chance to cut the finished version of this birdcage favor box.  Due to the amount of the detail and the score lines, I did not make dxf or single layer versions of this box.  This box only requires adhesive on one side.  The top is closed with ribbon and the bottom doesn’t require glue.  Fold in the double tabbed flap first, then the two flaps on each side of it, then finally slip the last flap (with the tab in the center) into the opening.

ETA:  I’ve had some comments on this file because I always use solid score lines since 1)  That’s what I prefer to use for my own projects, and 2)  They leave the most options open for other people.  However, you can’t use the same settings for the scoring layer as the rest of the cuts. If your program has a score setting you need to set that layer to score.   I currently use eCAL and when you tell it to score it automatically changes blade pressure to just score the surface of the paper instead of cutting through, but you can do the same with other cutters.  I used to manually change the blade depth and pressure for the scoring layer when I had a Cricut.   Just hide the score layer when you cut the rest.  If you don’t want to cut a solid score you can either convert the solid lines to dashes or hide/delete the score layer.

The download is a zip file with a layered svg file for use with SCAL2/SCAL3/eCAL.

      Hi Jennifer,

      I just downloaded the file, and it downloaded correctly as a zip file. You need to unzip the file to use it. If you don’t have a program to do that, search online for one.

  7. Dawn says:

    Hi Can you tell me what size you cut the box please

    • HeatherM says:

      Hi Dawn,
      It’s been a while, but I’m pretty sure that I set the size at just under 11 or 12 inches wide so that it would fit on my cardstock (I don’t remember if I used letter or 12×12).

    I tried to download this , but it is password protected, could you please help?

  13. Heather….I cut this today and it’s not all one piece, but all in pieces. Each side, top, middle and bottom. I must have missed something somewhere? I’m cutting it with a cricut…any ideas why ?

      Hi Laura,
      I use solid score lines. You can’t use the same settings for the scoring layer as the rest of the cuts. If your program has a score setting you need to set that layer to score. If not then either convert the solid lines to dashes or hide/delete the score layer.

      I currently use eCAL and when you tell it to score it automatically changes blade pressure to just score the surface of the paper instead of cutting through, but you can do the same with other cutters. I used to manually change the blade depth and pressure when I had a Cricut. Just hide the score layer when you cut the rest.

    • Hi Heather, thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I found the layers…and can eliminate the scoring one to do separately. Apparently I have a scoring tip too!. Learn something new every day 🙂 I’ll give it a go tomorrow. Thanks for the help.
