What you need for this project!
First, download the free svg and pull it into your editing software. I use the designer edition of silhouette studio. Don't have the Designer edition, upgrade here! The Designer upgrade will allow you upload SVGs, this will save you so much headache and frustration.
Once the File is uploaded, size it to exactly 1" wide. Then, personalize your pencil if you want. In my specific project I used a font my son wrote out called Dear Santa.
I find that it is easiest to double side tape the transfer tape to the work station and place the blank downward towards the vinyl each time.

I don't know about you but my ribbon storage was absolutely out of control, until now!
Don't have time to create this now? Pin it for later!
What will you need for this project??
First, you will want to cut all the pieces of the design out. I had to do a bit of rotating and rearranging to allow my pieces to cut in the Glowforge program. I also had to break up the and do two cuts to get all the pieces made. (Note: on my second cut I have a square, you will only need to cut this part of design if you want to make the boxes stackable.)
Second, you will want to lay out all your pieces for assembly. This is very important! If they are not laid out correctly you may find errors at the end when it is all assembled.
Third, glue and clamp the side pieces together. Double check that you are glueing this to the inside of the box. (This side would be facing up in the image above)
This is also, where you will glue on the base rectangle, if you will want to stack the boxes. Note: the rectangle will go on the outside/bottom of the box. (This side would be facing down in the image above)
Notice: the pieces are NOT glued on the notches of the box.
Fourth, time to assemble. Grab your hammer and gently tap the box together. It should fit snuggly together.
Tip: for added strength add a few drops of glue.
After the box is put together it is time for the wooden dowel rod. Cut your dowel rod to 8.75" and slide it in the notches to test the fit.
Last but not least add your ribbon, step back and see what you have just created or make more and more!
