What is a Cupcake Holder Box?
A cupcake holder box is usually made up of heavy cardstock, with a circular cut-out to hold cupcakes and keep them safely in-place during transport. They’re great for leftover cupcakes, especially when handing them out to guests. They’re visually appealing and a more budget-friendly alternative to giving out kitchen containers.

How Do I Make a Cupcake Holder Box With My Cricut?
It’s easy to whip-up a cupcake holder box! Your guests will be impressed once you hand them a delicious cupcake in this adorable, personalized box. All you need is your Cricut and some simple crafting supplies. Here’s how to put yours together:
Step 1: Upload the Cupcake Holder Box SVG file to Design Space
Begin by uploading your SVG file to Design Space (or, if you are using another cutting machine, its corresponding program).
Step 2: Set Up Score Lines
This project requires score lines, so be sure to check out my video tutorial on how to set them up.
Step 3: Cut Your Design
Follow your program’s directions to cut your file on your cardstock and acetate sheet. Gather all the pieces before assembling.
Step 4: Begin to Assemble the Cupcake Box
Begin with the large piece without the window and fold all the tabs, edges, and sides inwards. You may use your scoring tool for this.
Next, start folding the tabs, edges, and sides for the piece with the window. Do the same thing for the smaller piece, which will be the base where your cupcake sits.
Step 5: Glue the Acetate Piece to the Window
Add crafter’s tape to the window’s edge (you will want to work from the inside of the box for this step) and carefully place your piece of acetate sheet.
Step 6: Continue Assembling
Once the acetate sheet is glued on, flip the piece over and apply crafter’s tape to the tab closest to the window. Glue one end of the other large piece to this tab (as shown in the images below).
Step 7: The Box Starts to Take Form
Add crafter’s tape to the other tab and then connect it to the opposite edge. Watch your cupcake holder start to take shape!
Step 8: Fold the Bottom
Turn the almost-completed box upside-down and fold in the edges to create the base of the box.
Step 9: Assemble the Inner Portion
Now, it’s time to assemble the inner portion of the cupcake box. You’ll see that two edges have ends that fold in. Add crafter’s tape to those corners and then attach them to their corresponding tabs. This will “lift up” the entire piece.
Step 10: Add the Inner Portion Into the Cupcake Holder Box
Finally, add the completed inside piece into the box. Insert the cupcake of your choice and hand it over to your lucky guest!
