With school starting, I thought this cute index card box and mug full of goodies would be a nice way to wish your child’s teacher good luck this coming school year.

Index Card Box

  1. Cut out all the pieces and follow Mary’s directions in the pdf to assemble the teabag carton box.
  2. Embellish with the rest of the cut files
  3. For the index dividers I used three rectangles and placed the top half of the apple off the top edge and welded. Do this for all three with one on the right, left and middle.

Design Tips

Brigit - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • Use some white ink to brush on the black apples for that a chalkboard look.
  • When I’m dealing with small lettering I like to layer on my mat and cut out around the shadow layer, this way I still have a text layer but it’s easier to handle then small individual letters.

I hope you enjoyed these school projects and get a chance to make one of both. Don’t have kids in school; make them for a co-worker or even for your own desk or craft spot.

    This is a wonderful project. I can see the Tea Cup made for some Christmas treats. Would be perfect for some co-workers. Thanks for sharing.
