Find Out How to Make a 3D Crayon Box Gift Card Holder for Back-To-School or Teacher Appreciation With This Step-By-Step Cricut Tutorial, Video, and Free SVG File Template.
Give a thoughtful handmade gift with this crayon box gift card holder. It’s a great way to start the year off with something your teacher actually wants and will definitely use!
The Crayon Gift Card Holder design measures 4" across and has a pocket for the gift card inside the crayon card, which then is placed into the crayon box and leaves room for a cute hand-written message.
What Type of Paper Should I Use?
I used 80 lbs cardstock because it’s a heavier stock that makes a great card base. However, it is harder to fold, so I recommend using a single scoring wheel if compatible with your Cricut machine. The scoring wheels (double and single) make deep indents on your stock, making it easier to fold.
I also used 65lbs cardstock for details on the box and for the different colored crayons.
How Much Paper Do I Need?
Crayon Card & Base: 1 Piece of 12 x 12" Cardstock or 2 pieces of 8.5 x 11" Cardstock
Crayons: 1 Piece of 12 x 12" Cardstock for each color or 1 piece of 8.5 x 11" Cardstock
Pocket: 1 Piece of 12 x 12" Cardstock or 1 piece of 8.5 x 11" Cardstock
Details (green stripes, and black strips) : 1 Piece of 12 x 12" Cardstock or 1 piece of 8.5 x 11" Cardstock

In Design Space, change the lines on the four different yellow pieces to score lines then attach the score line(s) to their respective piece.
You can change these lines into score lines by going into the top left corner. Then, click on the dropdown menu where it says Basic Cut, select Scoreline, and attach to their respective pieces in the right-hand menu.
Step One: Cut Out Pieces
The Gift Card Design Consists of:
- 2 Crayon Box Pieces
- 2 Crayon Base Pieces
- 1 Pocket Piece
- 6 Different colors of crayons
- 2 Black strips (one thinner than the other)
- 4 Triangular Pieces (2 small, 2 large)
- 2 Slanted Strips
To begin, load your mat with cardstock and place it in the Cricut machine, and cut out all pieces making sure to switch between your scoring wheel and fine-point blade.
Step Two: Fold Score Lines
After cutting out the project, fold all pieces with score lines. Fold the 3 tabs on the front crayon box piece and fold the other along the top. Fold the crayon base with a score line like a card and finally, fold the three tabs on the pocket piece.
Step Three: Assemble Crayon Box
To start, assemble the crayon box by gluing the three tabs of the front piece to the back of the crayon box.
Step Four: Assemble Crayon Piece
Next, Glue the six colored crayons to the top of the yellow piece (without the fold) that matches the shape of the six crayons.
Afterward, Glue the six crayon piece you just assembled on top of the crayon card.
Then, place the thinner black rectangle strip toward the top of the crayons and the thicker piece at the bottom.
Step Five: Add Pocket
While the crayon piece is drying, add glue to the three tabs of the pocket piece and place it inside of the crayon card piece at the bottom.
Step Six: Add Details
Lastly, add the green details to the crayon box, starting with the big triangle pieces, small triangle pieces on top, and then the green stripes on both sides of the box. Finally, insert your gift card into the pocket and place the crayon card into the crayon box.
Insert your gift card into the pocket and place the crayon card into the crayon box.
