There's no specific way to copy content from one project to another, unless you do it with code. I'm not aware of the specific problem, did you submit another ticket for that? Why do you think it can be solved with a blank project?
If the custom widget template is the only problem that makes you want to do this, I think it will be much easier to solve that, instead of writing code to copy content.
