Barn Treat Box using Silhouette Cameo

Hey Everyone,
LisaB from Rather B Scrappin
I recently purchased a Silhouette Cameo and I am in LOVE!!! Today I wanted to show you a treat box that I made for my nephew's up coming birthday party. It is a farm theme. I went to Silhouette Online Store and looked for a barn box, with no luck.
Then I saw this box and thought that maybe I could make a barn out of it. So I looked for a barn that I could use and found this image. 

After purchasing both images I opened them in the Silhouette Studio program. When I opened the box I rotated it a little to make the most of my 12x12 paper. This image will be cut in red.

Next I opened the barn. I do not need all the pieces included...

 I deleted the pieces that I did not need.
 I made the barn pieces small enough to be close to the size that I think I needed. Moved both pieces together. Then zoomed way in and adjusted the size of the pieces to fit on the side of the box.

This is just the pieces filled in with color so you can get idea of which ones to group together to cut out.

Then just group the same colors together and cut out the pieces.

The finished box!!!

I hope I was able to inspire you today! Thanks for stopping by and checking out the Bugbytes
Until next time!
