Gift Card Box with Makers Movement

Making a gift box for use with a gift card with the Makers Movement. #sponsored @jointhemakersmovement

I am making a gift card box with a die from the Makers Movement. It is part of the Donut Box set. The donut box die has a coordinating stamp set making them so useful. No longer will you need to buy packaging for a gift card. You can make your own gift box and stylize it for the occasion.

The Donut Box die and stamps work together so well and can be used in a variety of different ways. Aren’t those donut stamps cute? They have coordinating dies to cut them out!

I planned on using the Special Delivery stamp as a surprise under the gift card inside the box but I totally forgot about it until after I was finished with the gift card box! – Oh well, next time.

CrossOver II from the Makers Movement was used with the Donut Box dies to cut the card stock. Be sure to check out the tip in the video tutorial below, I am not sure the die is meant to be used this way, but it worked for me. (notice the washi tape)

I wonder how you would use this die and stamp set? If for a gift card as I did, what card you would include? Let me know in the comments below.

Folding a paper frame using Cricut Design Space

Make a 3D frame using this free SVG file.

Need a frame? They are so easy to make with cardstock. Using a personal cutting machine makes it that much easier. They are very sturdy. Thick enough to also be used as a shadow box. The frames were really easy to make and rather addictive. Fold your own paper frame with this free SVG file.


  • 1 – 12×12 sheet of cardstock
  • personal cutting machine (I used a Cricut Maker)
  • optional adhesive
  • SVG file

Open the file in Design Space, ungroup. Select all and then center the two layers vertically and horizontally. Then attach, change the red box to score, and then cut.

Special thanks to Cricut for providing the Maker making this project possible.

cricut machine and paper
Begin by cutting out the SVG file linked above.

This is what the SVG file looks like. The black outline cuts and the red lines need to be set to score. 

The video below will show you how to set up the file in Cricut Design Space as well as how to fold it after cutting.
