Giftboxes are a nice way to present a handmade or store-bought gift. I like to really wow the giftee with the packaging just as much as I do the gift. This adorable baseball cap will surely be the talk of the party. Follow along as I walk you step by step in creating a Ballcap Giftbox.


  • Select A&C-Baseballcapbox1. Check the sizing is set at 8.6 x 9.242

  • Select A&C-Baseballcapbox2. Check the sizing is set at 10 x 9.408

  • Push "Make It"

  • Design Space will automatically sort and place all pieces neatly onto 2 separate mats. Load your first mat with a sheet of cardstock.

  • Make sure the dial is set to cardstock, cardstock+, or Light cardstock. (This setting will depend on the thickness of the cardstock purchased.)

  • Cut out both mats and separate the pieces into piles.

  • Fold all of the triangular and rectangular pieces as shown.


  • Glue both base layers together.


  • Next, glue the rectangular pieces together to form the walls of the box.


  • Attach the walls to the base.

  • Place the octagon inside of the box and secure it in place.


  • Grab two triangular pieces and carefully start to glue the tabs down. Glue two tabs down at a time and hold while drying. You will need to bend the paper as you go up to the point in order to form the cap.


  • Repeat step 14 with the other 4 triangular shapes. connect them together to form a circle.

  • Attach the small octagon to the top of the cap where a button would be.

  • Place the cap on top of the box base.

  • Decorate!



I am excited to see the many ways my readers decorate these adorable gift boxes! Please share with us in the comments, or our Facebook group, Cricut Crafters- Tutorials, Freebies, and SVG discounts!

Recently, I snagged a big eared stuffed Elephant and knew I wanted to put birth stats on the ear like I've seen in other craft groups. I picked up some matching Iron-on Vinyl, found a template for the birth stats, and grabbed my supplies!


Creating the Design


Using this Birth Stat Template I found at DesignBundles, I inserted my own stats using the font Soria, which can be found here for free! The SVG makes it pretty easy to know where to insert your own stats while keeping the shape of the ear. My design is roughly 2.5 wide.

(You will need to measure the ear to get the correct sizing for your elephant. )


Once complete, weld all the white parts together and then all the pink parts together. (This is to keep the design together when it goes to cut on the mat.)


The next step was to create the monogram. Using the same font, I made an uppercase letter A, roughly 2x2.5.


In order to place a name inside the letter, we need to break it apart. Go to shapes and choose the square. Unlock the shape by clicking on the lock and then drag the bottom corner towards the top to create a rectangle.



Place the rectangle over the letter A where you want the name to go. Press Slice. Next, drag the A away from the rectangle and delete the rest.


Add the name (once welded) to the middle then choose a color for the name and letter.


Cutting and applying the Iron-on


When cutting out Iron-on vinyl, you will need to mirror your image. This can be done on the Make it screen by clicking on the Mirror Image button.


Check the dial on the machine to make sure it is set to Iron-on. Placing the Iron-on shiny side down on your mat.

Once everything is cut out, carefully weed out the extra Iron-on and turn on your heat press and let it warm up.


For this project, I used my Cricut Easypress Mini. Let me tell you, I LOVE my Mini. So many projects are made easier to do when you can maneuver the press around that you can't do with a normal sized press.


The ears on my elephant were a little wrinkled, so I went ahead and ironed them a bit with the Mini. This also primed the ear and took out any excess moisture before pressing on the HTV.



Because of the head shape, I placed a wooden block under the ear to create a flat hard surface to press on. This creates the perfect conditions to get a great seal on the Iron-on vinyl against the fabric.

I then placed a Teflon sheet on top of the vinyl and then pressed the design. I did the same for the other side.

If you've seen Tiktok or have looked in any design groups recently, you should have seen the latest craze, The SpiralBetty! This thing has gone VIRAL and I am about to break down the steps and show you exactly how to make your OWN SpiralBetty.


Step 1

Go to the website, SpiralBetty.com and upload a photo into the circle. As far as the options below, drag the line for rings somewhere in the middle to give you a decent amount of definition in the photo, but enough thickness to the lines that you wont have trouble weeding.


Then go ahead and save the image.


Step 2

Next, upload into DS. Choose Simple.


Step 3

Erase. Before erasing, go into the advanced options and slide the color tolerance to about 65. THIS STEP IS IMPORTANT!


You should be able to click 1 time inside the circle to remove all the background at once.


If you do not change the color tolerance, you will have a harder time erasing, and will need to click on each section separately like the photo below.



Once uploaded into DS, size the image to a little under 12x12 to fit on the mat and cut!



I was able to weed the entire image in one long strand and it was SOO cool to see the image appear before my eyes! now to find something awesome to put it on!
