How to Make a Gift Box Using Cricut Maker Tools

Once you learn how to make a gift box using Cricut Maker Tools, you will be able to make all sorts of other items too. It’s the same basic steps for many of your craft projects. So go wild and play around with this fantastic set of Cricut tools. 

The most challenging part of this entire project is deciding what style to go with! Glitter, bright colors, pastel, prints, there are so many to choose from. Either way, once you figure that out head over to the design space and start on your design. 

The Cricut tools I used for this project are the Basic Perforation Blade and the Fine Debossing Tip. I will explain all of their amazing tools though so you can use them on other crafts as well.

Basic Perforation Blade

This is one of my favorite tools in the Cricut Maker Toolset. I wanted to take a second to break down some of the qualities that make this one of my go-to tools for many projects. Check it out:

  • You can make clear, perforated lines easily for all your projects. The precise perforation allows you to tear the paper without any damage or issues. It’s smooth and easy. 
  • Each of the lines are uniform, so you don’t have to worry about mishaps along the way. 
  • Add the basic perforation blade into the QuickSwap Housing and tell it to “go.” Then the result is fine and well-spaced perforations that you can make right in the comfort of your home. 
  • Make gift boxes, tickets, pull-out booklets, or anything else you want with this fantastic tool.

Fine Debossing Tip

If you want to add charm, style, and elegance to your project, then the Fine Debossing Tip is a dream come true! When you use the fine debossing tip, you will end up with a professional style that you can’t get at home from any other tool. You can seriously make so many delightful and lovely designs by using this debossing tip. This is a standout Cricut Maker Tool because it’s so useful. 

The secret to this debossing ball is that you roll it. You will have a broader range of motion, and it allows you to be even more creative. 

Make your own invitations, gift boxes, thank you cards, and more!

Wavy Blade

While I didn’t use the wavy blade when I made these gift boxes, I wanted to tell you how awesome of a tool it is too. Cricut Maker Tools are a must-have if you love to make crafts because it’s mind-blowing how many options they have. 

The Wavy Blade allows you to add decorative edges in less time. It’s your best friend when it comes to adding an edge to vinyl iron-on, gift tags, envelopes and more. Plus, it’s effortless to use too! 

Engraving Tip

Anything you make with this engraving tip will look professional and stylish! No one will believe you were able to complete engraving all by yourself! You can create personalized text, add some embellishments, and even make your own monograms. How amazing is that?

The engraving tip is sure to be one of your favorite Cricut Maker Tools too!
