You can choose anything you like to decorate the lid of your box. We cut a variety of Christmasy die cuts and paired then with patterned 2"x2" papers for the outside. You can find all of the die cuts we used in this Cricut Design Space file.
We used Electric Red, Wild Cherry, Gumdrop Green, Jellybean Green, Sour Apple Green, Red Mirror, Green Mirror, Gold Mirror, Gun Metal Mirror, and Silver Stardream Metallic to create our boxes. You can find all of these colors and more in our Holiday Papers Collection.

Subscribe to our channel to be the first to know when new videos are released!To print photos for the inside of your box, you will need to make sure your photos are cropped to a square and then print them as 2"x2" photos. The easiest way to do this is to print 6 together in one 4x6 print. We use the app Pic Stitch to make this SUPER easy! You can download it here for Apple and here for Android. Use the diagram below to help you prep your photos for printing.
Embellish the sides of your lid with small strips of patterned paper, rhinestones, pearls, brads, or whatever embellishments you have handy. You can also mix and match the lid and insert colors to create your own unique combinations. You can also add a ribbon to the outside of the box or lid to turn it into an ornament.
