I’ve been making cards for many, many years. In fact, a few years ago I made it my New Year’s resolution to send a birthday card to all of my friends and family. Scrapbook paper is one of those things that’s super easy to collect and I pick up a new pack nearly every time I visit JOANN (my craft store of choice).
When my mom gave me my first Cricut machine about seven years ago, I started using it to make cards and BOY was it a game changer! Fast forward to today and I now use the amazing Cricut Maker! I thought my original Cricut was cool but I had no idea how much better it would get.
The Maker has a revolutionary toolset the knife blade, scoring wheel and rotary blade to cut some crazy materials like wood and fabric and the scoring wheel make card making a breeze!
- Open the DIY Card Box file in Design Space.
- Add cardstock to standard grip mat (I used a solid white cardstock for my box and a printed scrapbook page for the lid insert)
- Load the Scoring Wheel into the Cricut Maker.
- The Maker will first do the scoring on your box then prompt you to switch back to the standard cutting blade to finish.
- After your design is cut, fold on all the score lines.
- Fold in the sides and glue in place to create the box that will hold the cards. Use clips if needed to help hold together.
- After your box is created you can cut simple cards to fill the box.
Since I’ve always loved card making, I thought a sweet DIY holiday gift would be this DIY card box filled with simple handmade cards. I filled mine with simple, blank cards but with Cricut Design Space you can easily customize your cards with a monogram or seasonal greetings.
