GSD Christmas Cracker File & Tutorial



This is a Cracker box i have designed on my craft robo, i am quite please as i do not design many of my own things!!!
If you would like to have a go you can download the template and then follow the tutorial below which will help you with scoring the box, it took me a bit of time but i think i have cracked it!!
Download my template by double clicking  HERE



Cut the file on your cutter, it is ddesigned to take up a whole sheet of A4 and makes a really decent sized box!


Pop out the little diamond shapes so you are left with a sheet like the one above...


Next, score along the sheet, going through the centre of each of the squares all the way along...


It should look like this and be taking some shape now...


Next, you need to score downward on your sheet, you will score 3 lines on each side. The first score is down along the edge point of the diamond, the second is downward through the centre of the diamond and the third on the other edge point of the diamond, repeat these 3 lines along the diamonds on the other side. It should look like the photo above now.


You will have 4 larger sections and one smaller section, apply some adhesive on the smallest section and fold up into a cracker shape...


Tie the ends with ribbon, floss, string or anything else that looks pretty!!!


And you should have your self a lovely little craker to decorate and fill with goodies!

i would love to see what you make with these, if you do blog them feel free to link back to the template on here
If you do download the template, please leave a comment if you are happy with it so i can see if it is worth me putting other templates on here for you to download

Thankyou for this...great file (Can I offer a little tip for robo? ~ instead of scoring put in dashed lines in the gsd file and that makes the folding easy too)

I love that you have done these flat sided. How many years have they been made round, only to roll off the table! Thank you for sharing your talent.

Hi Lisa - I'm slowly going through your really inspring blog and loving the stuff you do. Just like to say thank you very much for providing the free GSD file for this cracker - I have a silhouette which is virtually the same - same software etc. After two years (nearly) i'm still slowly trying out new things and attempting to create things - and i mean slowly!!!
