How to Make a Gnome Gift Box

Have you seen those cute gnomes popping up everywhere? My kids have always loved gnomes because Grandma and Papa have them in their garden. The kids love looking for them and they each have their favorite one. With Valentine’s Day coming soon, I decided to make a gnome gift box for my kids. It’s the perfect size for a Valentine’s Day treat.

Let’s Create a Valentine’s Day Gnome Gift Box

To get started purchase the gnome box svg from Lori Whitlock. Then upload the design into Cricut Design Space.

Once the SVG is uploaded into Cricut Design Space™, you must change the lines on the box from cut to score. Then ungroup the design and attach the score lines to the box.

This is my first project with the scoring wheel and wow! The scoring wheel is amazing. The lines are deep and the folds are so easy to see and of course to fold on. Creating these boxes was so easy. I can’t wait to make more projects with my scoring wheel.

I cut all the pieces in medium to heavy card stock so that the boxes will be sturdy. For the gnomes shoes, I used black vinyl.

Glueing the Valentines Gnome Gift Box

Now that all my pieces are cut, I folded the bottom of the box and the side to glue it together using the double sided mounting squares.

Next I glued together the gnome and added it to the box. It’s so cute and my kids are going to go crazy for them.
