To make this gumball Valentine’s box, you will need:
- Painted shoebox or pre-made shoebox which you can find from Hobby Lobby
- Cardstock – this is a good variety pack if you don’t already have cardstock on hand.
- Assortment of craft pom poms
- Cricut Maker or Explore Cutting Machine and your standard cutting mat. Or you can print and cut the designs out if you don’t have a cutting machine.
- Glue – This Bearly Art craft glue is my favorite glue for paper crafts, and I will also be using hot glue for the pom poms.

Watch the full step-by-step video tutorial to learn how to make this gumball Valentine box.
Upload the gumball SVG file to Cricut Design Space. Measure your shoebox and resize the gumball design if needed. To do this, first ungroup the black rectangle layer from the rest of the layers by selecting “ungroup”.
Then select all of your gumball layers and change the width to about 1 inch wider that your box. Then resize the black rectangle so it fits within the cut out in the gumball machine. Or, you can delete this layer and cut the top after everything is assembled.
Change any colors that you want to change and then cut everything out. Once everything is cut, assemble your box by gluing your cardstock to your shoebox. Then glue on the pom poms as gumballs.
This Cricut Valentine box is super cute! And will make collecting Valentines a lot of fun.
