Box Card file - now available for CCR and Gypsy

I've finally had a chance to make the CCR version of my Box Card file! I've also converted it to a Gypsy file, but haven't done a test cut for it.

The file is made completely with shapes from the Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge, which means anyone can cut it provided they use Cricut Craft Room or a Gypsy.

And you can even open the Gypsy file in the old Design Studio program (not Design Space) and cut it from there too!



So how do you get the files? Easy...

Click here to download the CCR file: https://app.box.com/s/ggqwcz7kdc4nvynhbc65
Click here to download the Gypsy file: https://app.box.com/s/9fb00ri0aoryyv26ly53

The files are for your PERSONAL USE ONLY and should not be shared via upload, email or in any Facebook/Yahoo/Patreon or any other type of group/page. 

Please refer anyone who wants the file to this post so they can also become a follower and download the file themselves.
To open the file in CCR please remember that you have to import it
  • Once you have saved the file to your computer, open CCR and click on My Projects.
  • Click the Import button
  • Locate the file on your computer and click Open.
  • Click on the new file in your My Projects folder and click Open.

When you open the file you will see that there are eight tabs. All but the first two have been hidden.

The first two tabs contain the score layer and cutting layer for the box base.
If you need to move the base to a different position on the mat make sure you also select the score layer. Otherwise the score lines won't be in their correct positions. The same applies to the inserts.

I have separated the four slot inserts and three slot inserts onto their own score and cut layers. (4 Z Score & Cut and 3 Z Score & Cut.)  As for the base, if you move the insert around make sure you move the score layer at the same time.

It's a good idea to hide any layers that you're not currently using. That way you won't accidentally move anything you don't mean to move! Just click on the "eye" on the layer tab to hide or show a layer.

Always do the score layer first. The easiest way to score is to turn your blade depth to 3, the blade pressure to min and select Vinyl from the materials list at the Cut screen in CCR.

Once you have done the score layer, change your blade depth and pressure back to where you usually have them set for your cardstock and select the correct thickness of paper from the materials list. 

You'll also find layers for the outside panels and flaps/inside panel.

Please let me know if you have any problems getting or using the file!

I have lots in store that I still want to share. If you want to be sure not to miss out make sure you also put your email address in the box under the followers gadget. That way you'll receive an email whenever I post something new!


Happy crafting!

Thanks for the files. I am currently without my Explore, had to have Customer Service ship a replacement, as my machine was not calibrated correctly and it was cutting off the left side of everything I wrote with the pens. So now I am working with my Expression and would like to cut a Box Card from CCR. My email is cooktoy1@aol.com. I am a follower, did that the minute I read a posting on the Cricut Design Space FB page. Love that you have handbooks too! Happy Crafting :-) Patty Cook

Faith Wallace said...

Have you thought about making this compatible with the Explore. That's what I am using for SVG files, and I don't have a Gypsy. Or do you know where to get a box card template for Explore (Design Space) from somewhere else?

Narelle said...

Faith, it is available for the Explore. In fact I created that file first. Click on the "My free Cut Files" tab to find it. :)
