Hi guys! In today’s post, I’ll show you how to make gift boxes! 

I designed 5 gift boxes templates (Milk Box, Pyramid Box, Vertical Candy Box, Pillow box and Sushi Box) that you can use with your Cricut or Silhouette cameo, or cut by hand.

SUPPLIES

- Boxes Templates (Find them here)

- Cardstocks (Colors of your choice)

- Cutting machine or Scissors and craft knife

- Glue 

HOW TO CUT THE TEMPLATES

You can cut the templates by hand or use a cutting machine such as Cricut or Silhouette Cameo.

BY HAND

Use the PDF files, if you cut by hand.

1. Print out the box template of your choice on cardstock.

2. Cut out the box with scissors and craft knife.

3. Score along the dashed lines using a ruler and bone folder.

4. Fold all scored edges.

5. Assemble the box.(Watch the video linked below for the tutorial)

6. Fill the box with treats or whatever your heart desires!

TIP: You can also print out the template on paper, then trace onto cardstock and cut it out.

CUTTING MACHINE

- I recommend using SVG file or DXF file with your cutting machine.

- Templates include solid score lines and dashed score lines. Solid score lines are for those who have a scoring wheel or scoring stylus. Dashed score lines are intended to be cut, so you don’t need any scoring tool.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE THE BOXES

Play the video below and watch how to assemble the boxes!


TIPS

- For best results, I recommend cardstock from 65 lb / 176 gsm to 100 lb / 270 gsm. 

If you’re using one side coated materials like glitter cardstock, foil cardboard or patterned cardstock, you need to put the cardstock face down on the mat of your cutting machine.

The files come in a zipped folder, you need to unzip or extract the files to your computer. On a Windows PC, right click the zipped folder and choose Extract Here or Extract All. On a Mac, just double click the zipped folder to unzip it.

HOW TO CUSTOMIZE THE BOXES

There are many ways to customize the boxes, just bring out your creative side! For example, I like to customize the boxes with the name of the birthday girl or boy, when I make party favor boxes. 

On the other hand, when I make gift boxes, I like to add the initial of the name of the person who is gonna receive it. 

Also, I add some embellishments like ribbon bow, stickers, confetti, tags and more. 

Here, I customized the vertical candy box with a ribbon bow, stars confetti and a name die cut. For the name, I used Milkshake font and finally cut it with my cutting machine.

To customize the sushi box, added some tags and initial name die cut. I also used Milkshake font to cut it with my cutting machine.
