Making a Circular Box

with CutCardStock

finished round box

Not only was this circular box fun to put together, but it also has great function. You can use it for storage or as a wrapping for a gift. The SVG file is adjustable so you can make the box in a variety of different sizes. The design comes with the top decorative element but you could omit that and do your own thing with the basic circular box.

The Modern Writers gel pen set from Ooly sells on Amazon for $17.99. And on the Ooly website, the fine line writers are $9.99. These seem to be similar pen sets but are packaged differently. The Ooly pens are lovely but the Jot brand writes well too. The Dollar Tree pens only have four pens so you are losing some of the beautiful colors. (the red and green) So how does the Dollar Tree version write? You can see them in the video below:

cardstock packs

I used the Glama Card Stock in Kraft for the box structure and MirriSparkle Glitter Card Stock in Gold for the top decoration. The Gold Card Stock has a glittered front with a matte white back. It is great for crafting as the glitter doesn’t flake off.

cricut maker

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker. As a reminder, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut. FYI – I always add additional protection when cutting cardstock by using washi tape around the edges so the cardstock doesn’t move when cutting.

cut out parts

I actually cut two additional circles from the Kraft Card Stock. You will see in the video tutorial that I used them to sandwich the tabs between them for a clean finished look. This also added more stability to the box.

The video tutorial below shows how to put it together.

This view shows the detail of the decorative piece on the top of the box. There is a bit of glue showing but it will dry clear and not be noticeable. I really like how the kraft card stock and the glittery gold work together.
