Personalize your gift wrapping like your personalize your gift with this easy to make gift box.
I have some amazing people in my life right now. From friends and family to neighbors and even strangers I meet in the grocery store I feel truly blessed these days. We’re teaching our boys about gratitude and so I thought what better way to show gratitude then to make some homemade gifts and surprise someone with them just because.
I have a pretty big craft stash (or as my husband likes to call it crap stash) so the last thing I wanted to do was buy more gift wrapping supplies to add to that stash. What I do have is lots of cardstock and that paired with the Cricut Design Space was all I needed to wrap up a little something special.
These gift boxes take less than 5 minutes to put together and the template is available in the design space already. It’s listed as a cupcake gift box but I put bath bombs in mine because we’re leaving them on porches and if the recipient isn’t home I don’t want their gift melting in the heat of summer. Tune in next Tuesday for my bath bomb recipe!
Vellum (On Sale for 50% off all month!)
Cutting Mats (you’ll need a 12×24 cutting mat for this project)
Open this design in Cricut Design Space. Hit the make it button.
You’ll want to have your patterned cardstock be the first cut, the individual pieces.
Load the patterned cardstock on to your cutting mat and cut. Make sure your dial on your Explore Air is set to the CARDSTOCK setting
Next, load the scoring tool into clamp A and cut/score the solid colored cardstock.
Lastly, you’ll cut the vellum. Move the dial on your Explore Air to CUSTOM and on the cut screen change the material to vellum. Cut the vellum.
Attach the patterned cardstock to the solid cardstock. You can use double sided tape or I love my Tombow Adhesive Roller. You’ll want to attach your vellum square to the patterned square with the circle cut out first and then attach to the the solid cardstock.
Fold the box along the score lines and put the box together.
Insert your gift and close the top by pushing the handles through the two sides that have the long slits in them.
You can personalize these boxes to the recipient or for holidays. I think I may make one for my son to take to his teacher on his first day of school. What would you put in your gift box? Who would you give it to?
