Instructions

Cat Treat Box

  1. Begin by creating the cat’s head. On to your workspace load the pumpkin1.svg,
    pumpkin2.svg and the panels.svg from Bedtime Stories SVG Kit. To the pumpkin2.svg,
    delete the 2 half octagonal shapes with cut lines. You will also want to delete both
    octagonal shapes from the panels.svg. Send to the cutter and assemble head. Please
    note that the cat’s head is the pumpkin upside down, without the top lid and stem.
  2. Next start working on the body. From the Fruity Fiesta SVG Kit open the
    pineapple_panels.svg, pineapple1.svg and the pineapple2.svg onto your work space. To
    the pineapple_panels.svg, ungroup and delete the cut lines. Cut out and assemble
    pineapple top and bottom as per SVG Cuts instructions. Using hot glue, glue the head
    to the top of the pineapple container/body. (Try to line up the front panels of the
    face with the body, as there are more panels on the head.)
  3. For the cat’s eye’s open up the leaf.svg file from the tick seed. Resize file as
    indicated above for both the eyes and pupils. Cut out and glue to face.
  4. To create the cat’s nose, make a triangle using the basic shapes library and size
    as indicated. Cut out and glue nose to face.
  5. To create the ears, open up the panel.svg from the Bedtime SVG Kit. Ungroup the
    pieces. Delete them all except for one of the panels. To the panel, using the
    point/node editing tool delete the top left point/node. Drag the right top
    point/node to the middle. Resize the ear to 2.255” H x 1.848” W. (See Diagram). Copy
    and paste another ear. Cut out the ears. Create a scoreline to the bottom of the
    ears using a scoreboard and bone folder approximately 0.25” from the bottom. Create
    a slight bend in the middle of the ears, using scissors make a slit up to the
    scoreline creating two glue tabs. Glue one ear to each side of the cat’s head.
  6. To make the paws open up the pineapple_panels.svg again and delete all of the
    smaller panels leaving only the larger panels. Resize so that each panel measures
    1.631”H x1.226” W. Do the same to the pineapple1.svg. Delete the smaller parts of
    the pineapple, size pieces to 2.848” H x 1.470” W. Cut out all pieces. To create the
    paws, glue 3 pineapple pieces together along with the panels (creating half a
    pineapple). Repeat for other paw. Using hot glue attach paws to the bottom of the
    cat’s body.
  7. Finally open up the cane_white.svg from the Christmas Cuties SVG Collection.
    Resize and cut it. Glue tail to the bottom of the body. Bend the tail slightly
    upward to create a little lift off the ground.
  8. Finish by adding the cat’s collar and tag. Embellish as you wish and fill with
    goodies!

Card

  1. Cut out and assemble moon card from Haunted Forest SVG kit. Do not throw out the
    cut out stars from the panel2.svg as you may like to use them on the inside of the
    card.
  2. Resize and cut out the Chat Noir layers from Maple Manor SVG Kit. Glue the Cat to
    the middle of the card, making it look like it is sitting on the moon.
  3. Cut out and assemble banner and caption. Glue to bottom of the card.

Design Tips

Ilda Dias - SVGCuts Design Team Member

  • When working with one color you may find it easier to cut out and assemble each
    part of the cat’s body as you go. This may save you some headaches if the pieces get
    mixed up. Then fit parts together and glue.
  • Emboss the outside panels on the body and head (excluding the face), if you want
    to give it the appearance of fur.
  • Coordinate the card with the treat box by using your favorite Halloween paper
    collection.
  • If you are simply a cat lover and Halloween is not your thing, change the color
    of the cat and shape and size of the eyes for a more realistic appearance!
  • By altering the face and maybe the ears this treat box could be made into a
    completely different animal. Just be creative!Make it a gift for the animal lover in your life! This project is fairly easy and comes together quickly. Hope it has inspired you to create your own Scaredy Cat treat boxes for Halloween or other animal lover occasions!
