Make Christmas gifts with a Cricut!
Although you don’t HAVE to have a Cricut Cutting Machine to make our cute, Christmas cookie packaging- you can turn this into an EASY Christmas Cricut craft with our included FREE cookie box Cricut cut and scoring files! We provide all the cut files you need to make perfect Christmas cookie boxes with your Cricut.
We’ll show you how to do everything step by step in Cricut design space. If you’re new to Cricut this is a great opportunity to dip your toes into an easy print, cut & score project. This could save you lots of time cutting with scissors and folding by hand! Especially if you plan on making many cookie boxes!
DIY Christmas Cookie Boxes Supplies
We’ll step through this DIY Christmas cookie box with our Cricut maker but you can make it the old fashioned way with our FREE PDF templates, cardstock, glossy white sticker paper and a Trim and Score Board. You may have to scroll a bit past the detailed Cricut instructions to get to the area where we show you how to assemble the box.
Beacon 3 in 1 Glue (dries fast with no residue)
Trim and Score Board (if you’re not using a Cricut)
Circle Punch (if you’re not using a Cricut)
Wax Paper or Parchment Paper
Homemade or storebought Crumbl Cookies
FREE Cricut Cut & Score Files (Download after tutorial)
DIY Christmas cookie boxes With a Cricut
We have an overview video that you might want to check out before you dive into the detailed, step by step tutorial instructions below. You can see how it all comes together!
Step 1: Download Files and upload to Design Space
Unless you have the new Large Format Cricut Venture we’ll have to tackle this cookie box in pieces. I’m using the Cricut maker so we have divided this box into 3 sections that will require two operations: print and cut, then a score for folding the box. We’ll then assemble the box with some quick setting glue.
Download each piece of the box (box parts 1-3 and sealing stickers) and upload to Cricut Design Space. You will need to upload each PNG as a print and cut file. Next, upload each corresponding score line file, which will be uploaded as just a cut file.
Step 2: Resize PNG print then cut files
Select each PNG piece (part 1-3 and stickers) and resize using the sizing feature on the top of the tool bar. Design space doesn’t have an integrated feature that will convey the correct sizing when PNG’s are uploaded. Therefore, the correct resizing will be necessary. Each piece will be resized as the following:
Part 1 – 6.84” W x 5.208” H
Part 2 – 6.812” W x 9.5” H
Part 3 – 4.494” W x 7.9” H
Stickers – 4.316” X 4.33” H
Step 3: Add and attach score lines
Once each piece is correctly resized, overlay the corresponding score lines to each print then cut piece. Use the PDF guide we have provided, our design space screenshots and videos to help you align the score lines in the correct position.
Ensure that the score layer sits on top of the print then cut box layer within the layers panel. Next, select the score layer and under line type on the top left toolbar, click the drop down and hit score.
Select both the print then cut layer and score layer and hit the “attach” feature at the bottom of the layers panel before hitting make it. Attaching will ensure that the scoring lines will be on thesame mat as the cut layer and keep both together as one action. Repeat for all 3 parts of the box.
Step 4: Print and adjust machine settings
Send each print then cut to the printer. I’m printing on Glossy Premium Heavy Cardstock. After, adjust your material dial or setting to medium card stock and if using a scoring stylus instead of scoring wheel be sure to let your machine know under edit tools.
The Cricut preview screen should read in this order “Print, score, cut”. At this time, load the scoring stylus into clamp A if using a maker before hitting the flashing “go” button.
Step 5: Load the card stock
Place the printed cardstock onto the blue light grip mat and hit the go button. Repeat for all 3 parts of the cookie box pieces. Your Cricut machine will run through both operations at once- cutting the cardstock and scoring the areas that need to be folded.
Step 6: Begin to fold
Now that all pieces are scored and cut begin to fold box parts 1-3 (4 pieces total). Use the folding guide or videos we provide for help on the direction of folds.
How to Assemble Christmas Cookie Boxes
If you didn’t use a Cricut to make your cookie boxes, this is where you’ll need to jump in and follow along. We’ll show you how to glue up the pieces of the box. I highly recommend a Trim and Score Board for non Cricut users- it will make things much easier to cut and fold. If you did use a Cricut machine, you’ll still want to follow along and see how the box is assembled.
Step 7: Glue Box Part 1 to Box Part 2
Using Beacon 3 in 1 Glue, glue the bottom tab on box part 1 to the top panel of box part 2 to make one long continuous piece. It should look like the image below.
Step 8: Glue on Box Part 3
Next, we’ll glue each box wall piece (box part 3) on to the panel of box part 1 (this is the panel that has the glue tab that we used to attach to box part 2). It should look like the image below.
Step 9: Close up the box with glue
Finally, close up the box. Use the last glue tabs on the wall pieces from box part 3 to attach to the box
part 1 panel directly under it and box part 2 panel directly above it. Repeat this same step on the
opposite wall. Your finished box should look like the image below,
Step 10: Add cookies
Using your favorite Christmas cookie recipe, add an optional piece of parchment or wax paper (to help prevent oil stains on box) then add your delicious homemade cookies. This box will hold approximately half a dozen thick cookies (could be more or less depending on size). Next we’ll show you how to make those cute, cookie box stickers to seal the box!
How to Make DIY Cookie Box Stickers
You can make our cute, FREE crumbl cookie stickers with your Cricut machine (as we show you below) or print them out onto sticker paper and cut them with a circle punch or scissors.
Step 11: Cut stickers
Resize the stickers in Cricut design space 4.316 wide and 4.33 in height and then hit make it button. Make sure it says “print then cut” in the preview window.
Load your printer with Glossy white sticker paper. Make sure the sticker paper is facing the correct direction…most printers are glossy side down. You may want to use the print dialogue box option in Design Space so that you can select a high quality print. Send the cookie stickers file to the printer.
Adjust material setting to either “paper, adhesive backed” OR “sticker paper, removable” from the drop down menu.
Load the printed sticker paper onto a blue light grip mat and hit go. The machine will run through a scan of registration lines, then it will cut the stickers. Add the sticker to the box so half is on the top of the cookie box and the other half is on the front of the box (like the image below).
Step 11: Add Black Ribbon or Bakers Twine
To really give it that professional and realistic cookie company feel, add 3/8″ Black satin ribbon or black and white bakers tine to one side of the box to complete the presentation. This (along with the sticker) helps to seal the box and keep the cookies fresh for friends and family.
