REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS TUTORIAL
You will need a deep* picture frame box or shadow box with removable glass. Inside the frame area must be exactly 190mm x 241mm (7 ½" x 9 ½") a standard 8" x 10" frame should give you the measurements you need, but it is always best to double check. *A frame that is 15-20mm deep (no deeper than 25mm) from the backing board to the front of the frame is best for this project.

There are 3 ways you can prepare the boxes and holly leaves. Choose option 1, 2 or 3 below.
• OPTION 1 (highly recommended) - Use a SVG cutting machine to cut out the provided SVG files. This option is definitely the easiest and quickest way to make the boxes and holly leaves.
• OPTION 2 - Print out the provided “printing template” on your choice of colour card stock (providing your printer accepts card stock) and make sure your scaling button is off. Carefully cut along all printed lines using scissors or a craft knife. (This option is not recommended to do on dark card stock as it is very hard to see the printed lines on the dark card).
• OPTION 3 - Print out the provided “printing template” on paper and make sure your scaling button is off. Carefully cut along all printed lines using scissors or a craft knife, then trace around the edges onto your card stock. Carefully cut along your traced lines using scissors or a craft knife.
