Instructions

Step. 1: Download the DIY 3D Paper Hat Box Free SVG

Download the SVG file in my free Resource Library HERE. You can get the password for my library by filling out the newsletter form at the bottom of this post.

Save the downloaded zipped folder on your computer. Pay attention to where on your computer the folder downloads and then unzip the folder to extract the contents. The folder and files must be unzipped (extracted) before you can upload the SVG file into your cutting software.

Step 2: Upload the DIY 3D Paper Hat Box Free SVG

Upload the SVG file into Cricut Design Space. The SVG file will upload grouped together. You do not need to resize or ungroup this design. It is prepared to cut and will produce a craft that is approximately 5.5in width x 1.5in height.

Once the design is uploaded, you will need to UNGROUP the file. Click the design and then in the upper right corner, click the ungroup button ONCE and only once.

Please Note: When you have uploaded the design, you will see three (3) different color groupings. The purple grouping represents the bow and ribbon of the hat. The blue grouping represents the top of the hat (which is slightly larger than the base). The pink grouping represents the base of the hat. I cut my base and top in the same pattern card stock but if you want them to cut on the same mat and card stock sheet, you will need to change the colors for the base and top so they are the same.

Step 3: Change Cut Lines to SCORE lines

After you have ungrouped the file, look for four (4) solid cut lines, in the LAYERS panel. Select them all, then move over to the OPERATION tab and change the operation from Basic Cut to SCORE. At this time, you will notice that the lines in the LAYERS panel have changed to dashed lines.

Step 4: Attach the Groupings to the Canvas

Once you have changed the cut lines to a SCORE line you are ready to attach. Select each individual grouping of the cut line and solid shape layer. Then, right-click on the design, and a pop-up menu will appear. Scroll to find the ATTACH button. You can also select the ATTACH button towards the bottom right of your screen.

Please Note: Each grouping of score line and shape layer must be attached individually.

Then click Make in the upper top corner.

Step 5: Mat Preview

After you click Make, a new window will open with your mat preview. When you are on this screen, you will see the software has prepared three (3) mats for the project. Take note of the order of the mats.

Please Note: If you changed the color of the base and top of the hat so that they are the same, you will see that you only need two (2) mats. I left mine as different colors for the purpose of the tutorial.

Examine the left side of your screen that has the different mats. Each mat should have SCORE and BASIC CUT. If you do not see both of these operations for each mat, click cancel and repeat step 3 of changing that cut line to a score line. If both score and basic cut are visible, arrange your card stock and mats to match the order on your screen. Then click CONTINUE at the bottom right.

Step 6: Medium 80lb Card Stock Cut Settings

Once you click continue, your next screen will have your material selection menu. For this project, I am using the card stock setting of Medium Card Stock 80lb Cut Setting. Check again to make sure that your scoring stylus/wheel and blade are ready for use. Check to make sure that your Light Grip mats are in the correct order and match the sequence your software has prepared. After you have completed this check, you are ready to begin your cut.

Step 7: Assemble the DIY 3D Paper Hat Box Free SVG
