Get Well Gift Care Box










Get Well Gift Care Box-JMRush
Approximate box size: W 9” x D 5” x H 6.75” 
(Bottom Drawer Approximate Size: W 9” X D 5” X H 3”)


This Get Well Care Box features two compartments. The top is a tissue holder ( which fits standard long tissue boxes) and the bottom is a drawer that can be used to store cold medicine, cough drops, aspirin, menthol ointment, thermometers, a can of soup and crackers, or whatever you will help your dear one heal from colds or the flu:)  This design is compatible with both 8X12 and 12X12 mats. 

You can purchase the Silhouette design file here: https://www.silhouettedesignstore.com/artists/485222

You can purchase the SVG and Cricut file here:


1.Cut design pieces. (I used double sided card stock). The Drawer Pieces are not shown in this photo because of the number of pieces. The Drawer construction begins on image # 21.
2. Flip the tissue box top ( with scalloped edge and rectangular cut out) and large rectangle (grouped together) over and fold score lines. Apply glue to the backside of the long tab on the left edge of the large rectangle piece. Align and secure to the straight edge of the tissue box.
3. Apply glue to the backside of the scalloped piece and secure to the coordinating shape on the side flap of the tissue box top.
4. Using the rectangle piece directly above the tissue box top in image #one, flip it over and fold score lines. Apply glue to the backside of the long tab. Align with the combined tissue box top piece’s straight edge and secure into place.
5. Moving to the group with the half moon cut out, flip the design pieces over and fold score lines.
6. Apply glue to the long side tab on the smaller long rectangle piece. Align and secure to the larger long rectangle. (The tab should be on top of the larger long rectangle or inside this box piece:)
7. Apply glue to the backside of the top tab on the combined rectangle piece. Apply glue to the top side of the bottom tab of the square side piece. Slide the square piece under the combined rectangle so that the score lines on both pieces align. Secure into place.
8. Repeat for the bottom square side piece.
9. Apply glue the backside of the side tab on the top square side piece. Secure to the smaller long rectangle piece on the combined rectangle piece making a 90 degree angle. Repeat for the bottom square side piece’s side tab.
10. Apply glue to the very bottom corner of the left side tab on the top square side piece and secure to the long side tab on the rectangle combined piece. Repeat for the bottom square side piece’s left tab.
11. This is what it should look like:) Apply glue to all of the tabs.
12. Secure the combined rectangle box to the combined tissue top piece; aligning with the score line where the tissue box top folds over. Flip the remaining two pieces ( long side pieces) over and fold score lines as shown in images #13 and #14.
13. Top: There should be a tab at the very top and one on the left side of the top long side piece. Apply glue to the backside of the top tab on the combined tissue box piece. Align and secure to the top side of the long side piece.
14. Bottom: There should be a tab at the very bottom and one on the left side of the bottom long side piece. Apply glue to the backside of the bottom tab on the combined tissue box piece. Align and secure to the top side of the long side piece.
15. Apply glue to the top side of the left long tab on the bottom piece.
16. Apply glue to the bottom 3 1/2 inches of the long side piece. Secure to the tab underneath the long side edge of the combined tissue box piece. Secure the 3 1/2 inches of glued side panel to the tissue box. The top tab will fold over the edge of inside edge of the tissue box.
17. This is what it should look like.
18. Flip the tissue box around so that the tissue box top is on the right. Apply glue to the top side of the long right side tab on the bottom piece.
Apply glue to the bottom 3 1/2 inches of the long side piece. Secure to the tab underneath the long side edge of the combined tissue box piece. Secure the 3 1/2 inches of glued side panel to the tissue box. The top tab will fold over the edge of inside edge of the tissue box.


19. -20. This is what it should look like.
21. Now for  the drawer pieces. 
22. Flip over and fold score lines. Apply glue to the backside of the left long side tab on the smaller long rectangle piece. Align and secure to the straight edge of the large long rectangle piece with a half circle cut out.
23. Apply glue to the bottom of the lower tab of the top side piece. Secure on top (top center) of the combined drawer piece. Apply glue to the bottom of the top tab on the lower side piece. Secure on top (bottom center) of the combined drawer piece. check out image #24:)
24. Apply glue to the backside of the right tabs on the top and bottom of the combined drawer piece. Secure to the long panel to the right.
25. Apply glue to the backside of the left tabs on the top and bottom of the combined drawer piece. Secure to the long panel to the left.
26. You should have a open box.

27. Fill the drawer with cold medicine, cough drops, thermometer, menthol ointment, can of soup and cracker, aspirin, etc. What ever will help to heal your sick loved one:) Place a long tissue box in the top compartment and secure the top by tucking the tab in the front.  I finished by adding a ribbon to the front.

  8. I just bought this - I noticed that the sizes are larger than I can cut on a 12x12 mat...do I need the 12x24?

  10. Potentially stupid question...how do I know what size to cut each piece while in the Silhouette studio? When I open the project, it is HUGE. I know I have to ungroup them and cut individually, but since some pieces have tabs that make it longer than the actual used space, how do I know what size to make them in order to get the right dimensions?

    1. Oh no worries:) All of the pieces are sized for you already. I think I have them grouped into sections which will need to be ungrouped. All of the pieces should fit on your mat for cutting. Please let me know if I can assist you further:)
      Thanks so much!
      Jennifer
