Need ideas to put in the box? Make mom a shirt or special gift with these Mother’s Day Cricut ideas.
To make this Mother’s Day gift box with a Cricut, you will need:
- Light or Medium weight Cardstock/Paper – this is a great variety pack if you need multiple colors.
- If you like the metallic paper I am using, you can find that here.
- Cricut Maker or Explore Cutting Machine and your standard cutting mat.
- Glue – This Bearly Art craft glue is my favorite glue for paper crafts.
- 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.
- Adhesive rhinestones (optional)
- Gift Box SVG Template

Cricut Gift Box Step-by-Step Tutorial
Watch the full step-by-step video tutorial to learn how to make this Mother’s Day Cricut gift box here:
Create a new project in Cricut Design Space and then upload the Mother’s Day gift box template and add it to your canvas. Click on your template and then select “ungroup” to ungroup your layers.
Note: You won’t be able to modify the box template if you don’t first ungroup your layers!
Modify and Customize the Gift Box Template in Cricut Design Space
Before cutting your gift box, you will need to change some of the lines to score lines. If you are not using a scoring tool with your cutting machine, then you will delete each of these lines instead.
To do this, select just the layer with the lines and change the operation to “score”.
Then click the group with the score line and layer it is on top of and select “attach” to attach the score line to the correct layer.
Repeat this for all 4 of the top pink templates and the 4 white ones below.
Your box is now ready to cut! However, if you want to personalize the box with a different name, then delete the layer with “Mom” and add whatever name you want. A thicker script font will work best and make sure to weld the font before cutting.
How to Assemble the Gift Box
Grab the 4 pieces that look almost identical (these are the top 4 pink objects in the design). There are 2 of each size of these. Glue them together in a line using the tab pieces to attach them. When you glue them, alternate them with the larger size, smaller size, larger size and smaller size. It doesn’t matter which one you start with.
Note: When gluing these together, make sure that you don’t glue over the score line. You should still be able to easily fold on that score line. It helps to fold here as you glue and press down.
On the top part of each piece (the side opposite of the other tab piece) add glue to cover that entire half and then fold it over on the score line and glue it down. This is going to give you a sturdy base for your box.
Then close the box together by gluing the last tab piece to the first one. When you close it, make sure you fold the box so the tab pieces are all on the inside to hide these.
There are 2 rectangles for your box (these are the rectangles the same color as your box sides). Glue the one that is larger on the bottom of your box. You will glue this to each of the bottom tab pieces. Press down really well as you glue and make sure to line everything up.
Then glue the smaller rectangle to the inside of your box as a liner. This will also cover up the tab pieces that you see on the bottom. The bottom of your box is now complete!
Assembling the Lid
Glue the white pieces together, just as you did for the bottom of the box, alternating between the larger size and smaller size. The piece that you start with doesn’t matter. But don’t attach the last 2 piece yet, leave it in a flat line.
Then assemble the flowers by gluing the rectangle with the flower cut outs on top of your other rectangle piece. Use this as a template to glue your hearts and flowers down. You will fill in each cut out piece except for the 2 green flowers since these will remain green. You will still have 3 flowers that you haven’t glued down. Put those aside for now.
Glue this to the back of the white template. Don’t worry about adding glue to the outlines of the skinnier flowers. Most of these don’t need glued. But once you glue it together, you can add a little glue for the couple of pieces that do need glued down.
Then glue the other 3 flowers on top. You can glue them down all the way or curl the petals and just glue the middle part to add more dimension to your box. If you are using rhinestones, add those to the middle of some of your flowers. And glue down “mom”.
You’ll also glue the rectangle decorative pieces to the sides and back of the lid. Just line these up with the middle of that section so they have a white border around them.
To close the lid, just glue that last tab piece to the first piece just like you did with the bottom of the box. Once this dries, you can slide the box inside.
This should be a snug fit because you don’t want the box to easily slide out!
