This is a step by step tutorial on how I made a polygon box using an SVG cut file on my new Brother Scan-N-Cut (SCN) machine. The SVG file is from Lori Whitlock and love how this box turned out. I used the Stamperia Wonderland Paper pack for the various layers around the box, the lid, and the top of the lid. All the paper pieces were cut out with the SCN machine and I’m super excited that I will be able to make fun projects using it. You can find the paper I used in ASC Supplies’ Esty shop and there is a link below to help you find it quickly. This paper is amazing and breathtaking. I really wanted to hoard it, but I knew it would be the perfect paper for this project.

ASC Supply List for the written tutorial project:

Various types of flowers and leaves
Distress Oxide Ink – Vintage Photo
Embossing ink and silver embossing powder
Step One: This box was simple to make. I first cut out the SVG file for both the top and bottom of the box. The SCN machine is great because it finely cuts the score lines, so all I had to do was fold over each of the sections and glue to the rim.
Step Two: Before I folded and glued the sections to the rim of the lid and the box I first glued down each of the corresponding pieces to their designated sections.
Step Three: This is what the box looked like after assembling it. Next, I did the lid.
Step Four: Once the lid and box were done I made sure that they fit and they did. The next step was to distress all the edges with the Vintage Photo distress ink.
Step Five: I took some words from a digital file I printed out and cut them down to size and then matted them on the same pink cardstock I used for the box. I also distressed all of the edges of the words and the cardstock with the Vintage Photo distress ink.
Step Six: I new I wanted to use something from the KORA Magic Day Chipboard Pieces, so I chose one of the flower pieces and dabbed it into the VersaMark Dazzle embossing ink. Next, I dipped it in silver embossing powder and embossed each piece with my heat gun. I knew I couldn’t use each piece with the long stem, so I did end up cutting the stems off and using each piece as a base on the top of lid.
Step Seven: For the lid I laid down the embossed flowers, then some leaves, then some of the flower stamens, finally adding the flower on top. I distressed the edges of the flowers with the Vintage Photo distress ink.
Step Eight: For the lid I laid down the embossed flowers, then some leaves, then some of the flower stamens, finally adding the flower on top. I distressed the edges of the flowers with the Vintage Photo distress ink. I added a metal dragon fly to the flower and then I hot glued lace around the edge of the lid.
Step Nine: Once I was satisfied with the lid I started working on the sides of the box. I made sure to put the lid on the box, so that when I added the embellishments the box would still fit the way it was supposed to, this was a lesson I learned the hard way when I first starting making boxes. On three of the sides I added a calla lily flower and a small metal dragon fly. I bent the wings up to give each side some dimension, because I didn’t like how they looked flat. On the other three sides I added the word and one of the crystal rhinestones to the other three sides.
This box is simple, but sometimes the simple projects are the ones that I really enjoy.
I had enough scraps of the paper left over that I decided to make a matching ornament, which I will be posting a tutorial for in my next blog post.
