If you would like to have the template for the Carrot Box in the next post click HERE. The template will be in a SCAL2 format. The reason I am giving the template in a SCAL2 format instead of the usual SVG format -- is that I have found a great way to put score lines on boxes using the SCAL2 'Layers' function!
I don't know about you, but I really HATE cutting scoring lines on my boxes - it just leaves a messy edge on the corner! I have found a great way to 'draw' the score lines onto my boxes. I was so excited when SCAL2 came out with the 'Layers' function, because now I can put the score lines and cut lines on separate layers. I just turn on the 'score lines' layer and insert a pen into the Cricut machine and it draws the score lines onto the paper. Then I turn off the 'score line' layer on turn on the 'cut' layer - then replace the regular cricut blade and cut the box out. I then manually score the lines on the box using the drawn lines as a guide.
TIP: slip a piece of scratch paper under the gel pen when loading and unloading the pens, this is to prevent the ink from accidentally marking your project.
I found that I really like to use gel pens to draw these score lines onto my boxes. You can use the Provo Craft Cricut Markers for this job, but I found that the gel pens give you a finer more precise line than the cricut markers. Also -you have to be careful using markers on thin cardstock because the markers will sometimes bled through to the other side of the paper!
