Heritage Recipe Box with Cutting File

Today, I’m posting another Heritage Recipe Box and I’m enclosing the WPC cutting file here and the SVG cutting file here for it.  I was excited about the news that Pazzles had partnered with Spellbinders.  I made this recipe box using some Spellbinders shapes cut with the Pazzles Inspiration and was honored to have Pazzles feature this box at CHA.  Check out the Pazzles partnership announcement along with this featured project on the Pazzles blog here.  The manual instructions for the project can be found on the Pion Blog here.  I actually made an updated improvement to the box design.  This design update helps the cards slide in and out more smoothly.

Here are some close-ups of the beautiful vintage Pion Design photos:

So if you’re planning on using the manual template, here is the template for the 6″ x 9″ accordion folded pieces with the cut lines demonstrated.  The pieces should be folded such that the cut lines are “valley” folds.   Blue lines are cut lines and red lines are score lines. You can see with the update that not every valley fold is going to be cut.  Since there are 4 cards per side, only 4 sides will be cut on each piece.

    Absolutely beautiful! I would love to make one for my mom. Do you have this in SVG file format? Thank you!

      Hi Annie – I only post the WPC file format. There are ways to convert WPC to the file you need, but I just don’t know how to do that. You may want to try doing an internet search to find out how it’s done! Thanks for your comment!

    Hi Tara I am unable to convert this to a word doc. can you help me? I looked at google, youtube. nothing helps.

      Hi Kimberly, I included a manual template on the post. It shows the cut lines and score lines for the accordion piece. The WPC file is a cutting file for the Pazzles Inspiration electronic cutting machine and cannot be converted to a word doc. Hope this helps! Take care!
