DIY Christmas Paper Box Design for Cricut

DIY gift box template that you can make from paper or cardboard for Christmas. Xmas craft idea with a Christmas tree look and a snowflake ornament. You can download the SVG cut file for free to make this box using Cricut.

Making paper boxes is the best way to add special decorative details to a party or celebration. Sometimes you want to present a gift to a special person. A small gift can put a smile on that beautiful face. When you give something beautiful, you want to package it nicely. The best way to do this is to make a lovingly designed homemade box.

We start the preparations for the Christmas celebrations weeks in advance. Decorative ornaments, Christmas cards, special meals, the most beautiful music and gifts that will be parts of our celebration are the details necessary for us to spend this day perfectly.

Although the tradition of giving gifts to people at Christmas is due to different personal motivations, it is both a tradition based on history and an example of a person’s expressing gratitude and compassion. In this project, we have drawn a Christmas paper gift box design in which you can present your gifts.

Paper is always a favorite of crafters who want to show their creativity. If you already have an SVG template, you can make excellent paper crafts with Cricut. Inside the files for this design are the templates for this box for both 12 X 12 inch and 12 X 24 inch mats. Thus, the SVG and DXF cut file sizes of the box are compatible with the work surface size of the Cricut Explore Air3, Cricut Explore Air 2, Cricut Explore Air, Cricut Explore One & Cricut Explore modes. You can open the SVG file in Cricut Design Space and resize the template for incompatible models.


  • Cricut
  • Thick colored paper. (12×12 inches)
  • Cutting mat
  • Score item
  • Fine tip pen
  • Glue

You have to change the dashed lines in the stencil to points in Cricut Design Space. You should also place the paper with the glossy surface on the bottom. So the scoring lines will stay inside the box and will not be visible. After that, first install your machine’s scoring wheel. After scoring your Cricut card, it will stop and ask you to insert the fine cutting blade. After doing this, it will cut the box template on your card and complete its task.

If you are looking for a DIY Christmas gift box idea and you like this design, you can download the PDF file. The PDF file is a printable outline xmas gift box template file. For this Christmas craft idea you will need the following materials:

  • Printer
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Ruler
  • Butter knife

Choose a good paper type. The type of paper you choose should be resistant to folding and strong enough to stand on its own. After printing the PDF template file on your paper with your printer, cut your paper by following the lines with scissors. Fix your ruler on the dotted score lines and score points without cutting them with a butter knife. Scoring then allows for easy folding of these lines. Complete your box with glue and fill it with the most beautiful gifts.
