With back to school already upon us, I thought these mini pencil boxes, which are a Silhouette Print & Cut file, were just too cute not to share.

Here’s what you will need to recreate these mini pencil boxes. 

  • Design #64599
  • Printer
  • Card Stock
  • Glue Stick
  • Silhouette Sketch Pen in Black


Step 1: Start by opening the pencil box design up in Silhouette Studio and adding registration marks, which can be found in the top right corner, fourth icon from the right.

Step 2: Print with registration marks.

Step 3: Wanting a little bit more added detail, I added little black lines for my sketch pen to draw out (as you can see below), which will need to be drawn before cutting out the pencil pieces.



Step 4: Once the lines are drawn you are now able to cut the pencil box pieces.

Step 5: Fold the perforated edges and start gluing the tabs together. It’s really a cinch!

Viola! The cutest mini pencil box for back to school, that can be stuffed with all sorts of treats and goodies, for all those back to schoolers. These are so easy to put together, and the perforated edges make folding them a SNAP. Whipping up a few of these couldn’t be easier.

Hello, I'm Brie (like the cheese) and you can find me blogging over at, a place where I can catalog my favorite projects and post anything I'm passionate about. My brain usually has way too many project tabs open at once, but I absolutely love doing anything that deals with DIY crafts, parties, yummy food, paper making, decor, design, and really good photography. I currently reside in Ogden, Utah and have been married for 5 years now to a good look'n hunk, whom I gave my number to at a bakery I used to work at (written on a PB&J sandwich). I also love Dr. Pepper and chocolate (insert flavor here) cupcakes.
