Basic Door Knob Hanger Treat Box - Design Space Cut File

It's always good to have a box that is unique and versatile in your collection. This door knob hanger treat box can be used for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthday, or any other holiday or event. You just add your own embellishments to spruce it up and to give it a theme. My example above is just basic to show it put together.

I designed this using all FREE basic images in Design Space. No subscription required to cut the file.

The completed project is 10 1/2" tall and 4 1/8" wide. The treat box itself is 4 1/8'"wide and 4 3/8" tall and 2" deep. It's a pretty basic design and once all cut out you will see how it goes together.

Magical Christmas Elf Door - Design Space Cut File

Do you do Elf on a Shelf? I designed a magical Christmas Elf door for your elf to get to and from the North Pole, and your child can receive behavior report mail from Santa! The cutting file is designed using all Cricut images that are available in the Cricut Access subscription. I cut the base of my door from 2 layers of chipboard to help it to be sturdy and stand up without bowing over. Then I cut another base layer from Neenah shimmer cardstock and dry embossed it using my Cuttlebug and the brick wall embossing folder from Tim Holtz Alterations series. Then I cut the window out of acetate. When you put the layers together make sure you do not glue the area below the mail slot too far up, otherwise you won't be able to stick the envelope in the mail slot. Most of the papers I used were either glitter or shimmer. The roof was embossed with a stone tile embossing folder. For my tree I opted to not cut the little berries and to just use adhesive backed rhinestones. All of the layers after the door layers are pop dotted to give added dimension. I even pop dotted the roof, the peppermint candies, and the flower pots. I went a little crazy on the pop dottindotting. HA!

Print Then Cut Santa Behavior Report
My door is 6 inches tall. You can make yours bigger. The envelope measures around .875 inches wide and 1.125 inches long. The envelope contains a tiny printed behavior report from Santa, that can be filled out. I have included the Print Then Cut file below.
