Cut the File in Cricut Design Space:
The file to make this Santa box is completely ready to go on Cricut Design Space.
I have the file sized to fit a candy bar with a width of about 2 inches.
This is a perfect size, for Reece's, Twix, and Hershey bars.
If this size works for you then you can go ahead and Make It.
If you need to adjust the sizing, select customize.
Make sure to highlight the entire design when resizing so all of the pieces will still fit together.
Watch the tutorial video near the bottom of this post for resizing tips.
This design uses 5 different colors of cardstock. White, black, red, pink, and beige.
Each color layer will automatically be put on its own mat when you go to cut the design.
Assembling the Santa Box:
Lay all of the pieces in front of you.
Begin by layering the Santa face, starting on the black base piece.
First lay the white piece with the beard on top of the black piece. You want to make sure everything facing the direction.
Apply glue to the back of the white beard piece and press it into place.
Next, add the pinkish beige face, followed by the top rim of the hat.
Lastly, apply the round reddish cheeks.
You will still have a small black dot, a larger white dot, and a Merry Christmas Banner piece. These will be added in a bit.
Using a bone folder, fold the scorelines of the box.
The bone folder helps you to get nice crisp folds for the box.
Apply adhesive to the back of Santa and apply him to the front of the box.
Now you can adhere the small black button, the white circle at the top of Santa's hat, and the Merry Christmas Banner to the bottom of the box.
Apply some adhesive to the bottom flap tab, fold in and secure it into place.
That's it! The Santa Box is done!
All that is left is to add the candy! There, now he is complete.
I also made a larger box that can hold a small bag of candy like Hi-Chew!
