How to Make It
1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the bubble bath box pieces.
Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.
2. Start by layering together your bathtub pieces, including the bubbles, towel, and claw feet. I also used a white paint marker to accent the bubbles and towel, as well as two little bunches of string to make tassels for the towel.
3. Next, layer together your rubber duck pattern pieces with their matching backings.
Then, assemble your inner box by folding along the score lines, and attaching the tabs to the inside walls. You can choose whether or not you want to use the divider piece depending on the size of the gift you want to put inside. Add the dark blue squares to the inside walls of the box to cover the tabs and increase rigidity.
Assemble the outer sleeve by folding along the score lines, and attaching the tabs to the back piece (the one with the bubble cutouts all around). Then, attach your longer decorative piece to the top and bottom of the outer sleeve, and the smaller decorative pieces to the left and right sides of the inner box.
4. Attach your bathtub design to the front of the sleeve. Then, fill your inner box with bathtime goodies, and slip it inside!
Isn’t it just so cute!? I love all the little bubbles coming over the edge of the tub.
I designed the box to be able to fit 2 standard 2.5″ spherical bath bombs in it. The ones I filled it with are the small ones I typically buy for my kiddos, so it can hold quite a few more of those. But, as I mentioned in the instructions, you don’t necessarily need to use this box for bath bombs. You could put bath salts in it, a small loofa, a washcloth—you name it! And if it won’t it with the divider piece, you don’t need to add that in there.
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fun freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting this bubble bath box together. And don’t forget to share your fun, finished project with me on Instagram!
