Pool Table Gift Box

Pool Table Gift Box

I haven’t had access to my photography studio (-ok, my son was home for winter break, and I couldn’t use his room/desk!), so it’s been a little while since I’ve been able to share projects.  He’s now back at school, and I moved back in to his room until he come’s home again.

Here’s a fun gift box I made from an svg file from SVGCuts.  It is part of a kit called “The Green Room” which includes projects for anyone who loves throwing darts, shooting pool, playing poker or bowling.  I cut the pieces with my Silhouette electronic die cutting machine and some card stock.  A video tutorial is available to help with the assembly.

The card stock I used is Core’dinations French Roast and Gina K Christmas Pine.  I used an adhesive pearl for the cue ball, although I would prefer it to be whiter so I may keep looking for something different.  The svg file contains circles for the balls, but they do not have detail on them so I found a google image for the rest of the balls and created a “print and cut” file.  Then I used a thin strip of the brown card stock to create height for the rack (as you would when quilling).

The cue stick had visible score lines when it was folded, so I inked the edges with some Gina K Dark Chocolate ink.

The box is a pretty nice size for small gifts and treats. (It is 4″ x 6″ on the bottom and 2″ deep, and it gets slightly wider toward the top).

  1. Until you said it was a box I, too, thought it was a real table. And, to think you made it with paper is even more outstanding. I just love that design.
