Looking for birthday gift ideas? I have a simple, fun, and personalized one that doesn’t take a lot of time or money!
When you’ve been married for as long as Josh and I, it can be hard to come up with new birthday gift ideas. We celebrated by going to a Dodgers game in the Dugout Club seats and cheering on our boys in blue, but I wanted to do something for him as well. Enter the “snack box”.
What is a snack box? It’s a “tackle box” with candy / snacks in it. To level up, I added a label to the front using my Cricut Maker.
For this project and to make your own snack box, you will need:
- Creator of Cricut
- Cutting mat
- Transfer tape
- Weed burner
- OR you could get the tool kit
- Container – this container was found at Walmart for under $ 3 (!!), but there are all kinds of containers available. I’ve found them at Hobby Lobby, Target, Home Goods, Ikea and more.
- Favorite candies – choose your loved one’s favorites to add to the container
I have to admit I may have added some of my favorite candies as well.
The basics of creating a label:
- Design labels in Cricut Design Space.
- Load the vinyl into Maker.
- Design and unload.
- Weed the design.
- Add transfer tape to the design.
- Apply to the container using a scraper to adhere well.
- Remove the transfer tape.
For this design I used DTC Miss Honey and Cricut Sans fonts. They are both available in Design Space.
I am often asked how I complete the projects I do using my Cricut and Design Space. My answer is always the same: the more you play with Design Space, the easier it becomes. When you have mastered the basics, you’ll want to use it for everything!
After designing in Design Space and cutting the vinyl on the Maker, it was time to weed, transfer tape, and apply.

It’s probably not the first time you’ve heard how much I love my Cricut! I have done a LOT of projects and giveaways with it. Here are a few :
