How to Make these Valentine Treat Boxes with your Cricut:

To make these Cricut Valentine boxes, you will need:
- Medium or Heavy Weight Cardstock – If you don’t have cardstock on hand, this variety cardstock pack is a great pack to grab, and it has all the colors you will need for these treat boxes.
- Cricut Maker or Explore Cutting Machine and your standard cutting mat.
- Scoring Stylus (which is what I will be using in this tutorial) or Scoring Wheel (Maker only). If your cutting machine doesn’t have the scoring feature, this scoring board and stylus is great to use.
- Glue – This Bearly Art craft glue is my favorite glue for paper crafts and I will also be using hot glue.

Watch the full step-by-step video tutorial to learn how to make this Cricut Valentines box:
Upload the Valentine box SVG file to Cricut Design Space. Then ungroup your layers by clicking on “ungroup”. You will also need to ungroup the layers of each individual box.
Then, click on the layer with the group of 4 lines and change your operation from “basic cut” to “score”. If you are not using a scoring tool with your Cricut, then delete these layers. Attach your score lines to the base of your box.
Repeat this for each box design.
To resize the Cricut Valentines Box, just grab the handle to make them smaller or larger. Make sure the proportions are locked and that you resize all layers together. You’ll want to keep the size within the 11.5″x11.5″ if you are using 12″x12″ cardstock. Or you can use letter size cardstock as well and resize these smaller to fit this paper.
Assembling the Cricut Valentine Treat Boxes
To assemble the boxes, start by gluing the characters pieces together. You can see the design in Cricut Design Space to see exactly where to glue each piece.
For the Gnome, you will glue the pieces to the outside of the box. But for the frog and owl, you will glue the pieces to the inside of the box. If you have any issues, just watch the video tutorial here to see exactly how to assemble each box.
Once these are fully dried, fold on all of the score lines. Then, glue all 4 of the tab pieces to the front and back to create a box shape. And then glue the handle to your box.
Then fill the treat boxes with small gifts or candy! The heart decorations make these boxes perfect for Valentine’s Day. But they are great to use year round for party favors or other uses.
We filled these Valentine boxes with candy, lip glosses, small stuffed animals, scrunchies, travel size bath products, fidgets and other small toys for friends! Just to give you some ideas on fun treats to go inside.
