How to Create a Cricut Mug Gift Box

A Cricut Mug is the perfect gift for any celebration or holiday. A great way to present a mug is to create a Cricut Mug Gift Box.

Supplies Needed

Cricut Maker 3 or Cricut Explore 3

StandardGrip Machine Mat - 12 in x 12 in

Scoring Stylus

Fine Point Blade


Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Cardstock or Glitter Cardstock

Step 1

Load the Scoring Stylus into Clamp A and the Fine Point Blade into Clamp B. Add the glitter cardstock to the StandardGrip Mat and use a Brayer to ensure the cardstock is completely attached to the mat.

Step 2

Open Cricut Design Space and select the image, Box Mug Holder #M1899C110. The Cricut Maker will use the scoring stylus first to create the scoring lines, then it will cut with the fine point blade. After both pieces have been cut, remove carefully by peeling the cardstock away from the mat so the cardstock does not curl.

Step 3

After you’ve carefully removed your cardstock pieces from the mat, fold along the score lines inward so all of the flaps or pointing inward towards the box. Add hot glue along the flaps and assemble the box.

Step 4

After your box is assembled carefully place your mug inside. This mug box can fit mugs up to 12 oz. The cups shown are 10 oz stackable mugs that were created with a cricut mug press, influsible ink, and the design can be found here. If you want to decorate your mug box you can use iron-on material or vinyl to make it as festive as you please.
