I've been making little boxes with this same basic method since I was at primary school (with scissors not a cutting machine as it was a long time ago) - we'd make little boxes out of old Christmas cards to decorate the Christmas tree - they're very sweet and pretty and such a good idea...

Gift boxes are a wonderful project to make with your cutting machine - you can save lots of money by making your own little gift box in just the colour and size you want to present your carefully chosen gift perfectly!

This method of card box making templates makes a really nice sturdy box with strong edges and corners - so they look really professional and stand up well to being carried about and actually used!

In school, I actually used to make these little boxes without glue - so the construction design does work without glue to make the box, but of course, I do actually recommend you make the gift box templates with glue as they'll be much straighter, firmer and hold together better. So you could make them without glue - but I recommend you use it!

I've experimented with and tweaked the design to make sure it works well and looks beautiful too - I've made a lovely little surprise for these card box making templates, too, so that they're extra special for the recipient...

I've created a lovely colour contrast insert for the inside so that the gift box looks lovely inside and out and gives that extra bit of luxury that can really help with the beautiful presentation of your gift...

How to Make Your Gift Box Template

Each of the gift box templates below uses the same basic design and method, so they share the same instructions, which I'll show you for the basic square gift box template...

The box ix made using the cut and score functions on your cutting machine - the score function creates the fold lines ready for us to fold and create the box - you can also do this manually if you don't have a scoring tool, or if you prefer...

For each of the card box making templates, follow the basic instructions below (you will also receive a PDF with the links to these instructions with your template)...

  • To set up the score lines in Cricut Design Space, follow these instructions here - you may also find this useful even if you're using a different cutting machine. If you want to read a discussion about choosing a scoring tool for your Cricut and/or scoring manually (by hand without a cutting machine) check out the start of this page...
