Cricut Christmas Boxes

These Cricut Christmas boxes are perfect for small gifts, especially handmade Christmas gifts. The box template is already sized for holding small Christmas treats and gifts. But you can easily size them larger or smaller as needed.

These Christmas Boxes easily come together in just minutes. With 4 different designs to choose from: snowflake, Santa, gingerbread man and a hand holding an ornament, you can easily make a variety of these even if you are new to paper crafts!

Supplies Needed for these Cricut Christmas Boxes:

Step by Step Tutorial

Step 1

Upload the Cricut Box Template to Cricut Design Space. If needed, this tutorial will show you how to upload files to Cricut Design Space. Before editing your design, you will need to Ungroup your Layers. With all your layers selected, click on “ungroup”.

Ungroup all layers of your Cricut Box Template.

Step 2

If using a Cricut Explore, you will need to change the layer with the red lines to “Score” instead of “Cut” in Design Space. You can select both layers together by holding down shift.

If your cutting machine does not have the scoring option, hide those layers and score the box by hand with your scoring board and stylus after you cut it. The scoring feature is really useful when making paper crafts like boxes. So, if you don’t have a Scoring Stylus or Scoring Wheel (Maker only), I definitely recommend getting one.

Change your cut lines to score lines in Cricut Design space.

Step 3

Attach your score lines to your box layer. Hold down shift and select your bottom box layer with the score lines and select “attach”. Do this again with your top box layer and score lines.

Attach your score lines to your box in Cricut Design Space.

Step 4

Select “Make It” and prepare your light grip cutting mat as shown in the preview. Cut and remove your design from the mat.

*Tip: When removing cardstock, I put the mat face down on the ground and roll the mat off of the design. The cardstock comes right off this right!

Step 5

After the boxes are cut, fold along the score lines. Cut out a square piece of craft plastic or your cellophane plastic to fit inside the lid of the box. Use tape or glue to adhere the clear plastic to the inside of the lid. You can also use different colored cardstock instead of the clear plastic to hide the contents inside your Christmas box.

Fold your box on the score lines.

Step 6

Use the small tabs to tape each box piece together. Just fill these boxes with Christmas gifts or treats and they are ready to go!
