ScanNCut Portrait Boxes

As I mentioned recently, my sweet friend Birgit came to visit New York from the Netherlands.  

Knowing she was coming, I wanted to make her a little something I'm calling a Birga-Box.


A totally fun gift that looks just like her!  If you glued a piece of acetate or plastic behind the face you could totally use these boxes for candy or favors at a wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, or birthday party!

A couple things I learned along the way:

I tried cutting the box out of different colors, but the black is the only one that looked "right."


I tried putting patterned paper in the bottom of the box, but it didn't quite look as good to me.


I figured out how to use a perforation line in my cut file for easy peasy folding!


Here's a quick video about how to find the perforation line:

The best part is now that I've done my trial and error and know how to make the box look its best, I can make lots and lots more with lots of different people's faces!

Thanks for stopping by!


Please note that I am a paid spokesperson for the ScanNCut, but all of the enthusiasm for it is my own!  It's a machine that I love and use all the time.
