Making Gift Boxes with and without a Cutting Machine!

DIY Gift Boxes #closetomyheart #ctmh #ctmhperfectmatch #perfectmatch #valentine #giftboxes #diygift #diygiftboxes #diyvalentine #papercrafting #cricut #cricutartiste #cricutartphilosophy

It’s no secret that we love getting crafty around these parts, and Valentine’s day gives us an excellent excuse reason to spend a little extra time and energy creating pretty things because we’re doing it for other people!

Spreading kindness, especially during a time where we feel more disconnected and distant than usual, is contagious! Throughout this season of love, we challenge you to find ways to safely lift someone else’s spirit and let them know that you care.

One simple way to make someone’s day is with a small handmade gift from the heart. Since getting together isn’t an option for everyone right now, we thought we’d show you a few small gift boxes we created that can be dropped off in a mailbox or on a doorstep.

These first examples are made by pairing a couple of our Cricut® collections with the papers, stickers, and stamp set in our Perfect Match collection.

If you don’t have access to a Cricut® machine, don’t worry! You can still participate in the challenge of putting a little love into the world, as well. We’ve asked our Creative Arts Manager, Karen Pedersen, to show us how to make a box and small pocket envelope by hand. As always, she delivered! Take a look.

We hope you found some creative inspiration as you took a peek at these artwork examples today, and that you were able to see just how simple it is to make something beautiful with your own two hands! Let’s take care of each other this Valentine’s season and spread kindness and positivity. As you do, you’ll not only bring happiness to others, but you might just see a little added joy in your own life, too!

  2. Thank you for posting the Cricut #’s for each box. I’ve been a CTMH Consultant off & on 4 over 15 yrs., but I recently received a Cricut Machine 4 X-Mas & have been trying 2 learn how to incorporate the CTMH Patterns & Designs in Cricut Design Space. I have purchased the “You Are Here” & “Artistry”, but I guess I expected to be able to pull up the CTMH designs & layouts for cardmaking & scrapbooking kits in design space, then just let the machine cut & write everything 4 me. Am I crazy in thinking this or have other consultants asked a out this? If CTMH is partnered with Cricut why are we unable to do this, or how do I actually do this? I would really appreciate the help & feedback as there are only 2 other CTMH Consultants in the state of ND & they R 6hrs., drive from me!😊 Thank you.

    • Hi Chelle! Thanks for the question. If we understand correctly, you are asking how to access just your CTMH cricut collections in Design Space™. In order to do this, click on “My Projects” or “New Project” (either one works), then “Images,” then, at the top, next to “Category,” click on “All Images.” From here, click on “Image Sets” in the left column. Expand “Ownership” and click on “Purchased.” All of the collections you own will show pop up. If you have a lot to filter through, you can do a specific search for “Close To My Heart.” If we’re misunderstanding your question, please let us know and we’ll figure it out together.
