I’m Michael Tyler and since January 2011 I have been creating Vectric’s Free monthly projects. I’ve made everything from spring wreaths and mantle clocks to snow sledges and cheeseboards.
Did you know there are already over 100 projects free for Vectric customers to take advantage of and we’re working on more every month! Each project comes with the file(s) for you to download, along with a PDF document that highlights some of the key important steps to help you get through your project. Plus all free projects since 2018 come with their own video that tells the story of the project from start to finish.
The cutie boxes make a great gift for the young and old, alike! Easily made over a weekend, these small boxes feature simple cutting and assembly so you can finish them on short notice, if necessary! (Did you forget a birthday or anniversary? Cutie boxes to the rescue!)
The v-carved design on the lids can be performed as-is, or you can create your own custom v-carve design using your Vectric software!
I used the Vectric VCarve software to create the Cutie Boxes project. A few features used in this project included import Bitmap, Trace Bitmap, Curve Fit vectors, the Drawing and Node editing tools, Snapping features, Fixed Nudge, and the Interactive Trim (scissors tool).
which Vectric software do i need to be able to open the free project files?
Versions 10+ of the software
