Hello everyone! Ginger Williams here showcasing a birthday gift wrap idea you can make with your Cricut Machines. At my house we seem to have a large amount of half used rolls of gift wrap in two themes–boys and Christmas. This works out well if I am wrapping something for one of my three boys, or if I want Christmas wrapping paper, but every now and then I need something for a girl, or for an adult, or for some other occasion. Thankfully, I can turn to my Cricut for the perfect wrapping solution and save myself yet another run to the store.
For this gift box I used one of my newest favorite cartridges, Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2, to cut the Pizza box. I used the pizza box as the base for my gift box. The finished size of this particular box is around 6″ square by about 1 1/2″ tall, which makes it a great box for many small gifts. To make it that large I did cut it in two pieces as opposed to the main cut which makes the box in one cut, but makes a much smaller box.
I wrapped the box with two bands of patterned paper which I stitched together with my sewing machine and then wrapped with white crochet thread. I cut the “Celebrate” sentiment from the Paper Lace 2 Cartridgeand added it to the paper band with pop dots. A little bit of Stickles glitter on the sentiment gives it more sparkle.
Lastly, I decided to add a little tag to the bottom right with an additional sentiment. I cut the tags from the Art Philosophy Cartridgeand the the font is from the Street Sign Digital Cartridge. I added the tag and the tag layer to the gift box with pop dots for added dimension.
Now I have a perfect little box ready for giving the next time I don’t want to use super hero or Christmas gift wrap!
