One of my favorite parts of the holidays is baking cookies. I love to bake dozens and dozens and give them as gifts to friends and neighbors. Each year I go in search of decorative boxes or tins in which to give them. This year I opted to make my own customized Christmas cookie boxes with the help of my trusty Cricut Maker. These boxes are very easy to make and look adorable!

These Customized Christmas Cookie Boxes are easy to make using a Cricut machine  (I have the Cricut Maker and I LOVE it). The lettering is too detailed to cut by hand, or at least too detailed for ME to cut by hand but you’re welcome to try!

I created an SVG file for each of the designs. You can get the SVG files for free by clicking below:

I bake only one type of Christmas cookies for gifts. I make Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies that are always a huge hit with everybody who tries them. You can find the recipe by clicking below:

MAKING THE CUSTOMIZED CHRISTMAS COOKIE BOXES

I created three different SVG files for the Customized Cookie Boxes. Each one is available free for download. Instructions for each box follows below.

STEP 2: Cutting the SVG

Choose your desired color of vinyl adhesive and cut per the Cricut machine prompts. You can use whatever colors and type of vinyl you wish.

After cutting all of the letters and shapes, carefully peel away the excess vinyl that is not part of the letters and shapes from the liner. Be careful not to pull off any of the letters or shapes.
