How Do You Make a Box Template on Cricut?

Making a box template on Cricut is a great way to get creative with your craft projects. With the right tools and materials, you can create a variety of different boxes in various sizes and shapes.

Whether you are looking to make a gift box, a keepsake box, or just something unique for yourself, Cricut makes it easy to create custom designs that you can use over and over again.

To get started with your project, you will need the following supplies: Cricut machine, cardstock or other paper of your choice, scissors or craft knife, ruler, and adhesive. Begin by selecting the size and shape of your box template.

You can use the template maker in Design Space to draw out the exact size and shape that you want. Once you have drawn out your design, it’s time to cut it out.

Place your cardstock onto the cutting mat and load it into the machine. Make sure that your design is aligned properly before beginning the cut. Once everything is in place, select “Make It” from the menu on Design Space and follow the on-screen instructions.

When cutting out the template pieces for your box, be sure not to cut too close to the edges as this could weaken its structural integrity when assembled. After all of your pieces have been cut out, use scissors or a craft knife to round off all of the edges for a finished look.

Assembling Your Box Template:

Lay all of your pieces flat on a clean surface so that they are easy to assemble. Begin by applying adhesive along one edge of one side piece and then attach it to another side piece at an angle so that they form an open-ended box shape.

Continue this process until all four sides have been glued together. Once fully assembled, use scissors or a craft knife to trim away any excess glue from around each seam for a neat finish.

Adding Finishing Touches:

Now that your box template is complete all that remains is adding some finishing touches such as decorative elements like ribbon or twine for handles or embellishments like buttons or fabric flowers for added flair.


Making a box template on Cricut is an easy way to create unique boxes in various shapes and sizes for any occasion. With just some cardstock and other basic supplies you can make custom boxes using Design Space’s template maker and then assemble them using adhesive before adding any final touches.
