I love making stuff for wedding using my Cricut. I made this set of favors boxes than can be used for other parties as well.
People ask me why I make all this wedding stuff when I’m already married. Well, because it’s fun!
I really love flowers and lace and other super feminine design projects and it just all suits weddings so well. I figured I’d help all my DIY brides out there a little bit in the process.
In any case, this is a continuation on my rustic illustrations series of Cricut wedding designs. I made 3 designs that are all included for Free in my Resource library.
Recommended Materials for Wedding Favors Boxes
Cardstock – In general, I recommend using non-textured paper with a colored core. It is a more intricate design and the textured paper tends to not cut as well and frays with the white core. My favorite is this Kraft set from Recollections. It fits the whole rustic thing well.
Best deals on recommended cardstock:
- Recollections 65lb Cardstock from Michaels
- Metallic Shimmer Assorted Set from Amazon
- Neenah Collections Assorted Set from Amazon
- Kraft Cardstock from Michaels
Glue – I use Tacky Glue.
Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut
Template – I’ve included mine for free in my resource library.

Tips for Making Cricut Wedding Favor Boxes
Step 1: Cut out the template. I recommend using the green mat. It is a more intricate design and needs the stickiness.
Step 2: Scoring the folds. I included a set of score lines in the template but I don’t use them myself mostly because I don’t have a scoring stylus. (who does?!) I just use my scraper (or credit card) and a ruler.
Step 3: Glue the box together. That’s it!
