If you’re anything like my family then you’re gearing up for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!

My husband is a huge Star Wars fan who has done everything in his power to get me and our sons acquainted with all of the movies. I think it’s cute when he gets excited about a new Star Wars movie coming out, so I decided it was finally time for a full blown Star Wars movie marathon.

I’ve had this fun Star Wars scrapbook paper kicking around my workshop and knew this would be the perfect time to use it.

And I thought… what goes better with movies than popcorn?

Well, maybe a big tub of Twizzlers but that’s a project for another day.

Here’s what you’ll need to make these incredibly easy popcorn boxes.

DIY Star Wars Popcorn Box Supplies

First thing’s first: click this Popcorn box link to open up Cricut Design Space. This scalloped box is free with Cricut Access. 

Place your paper design side up on on your machine mat. Be sure to set your machine’s dial to “custom” and select “Deluxe Paper.” You will load your scoring stylus into clamp A and your fine-point blade into clamp B.

 Let ‘er rip!

Your machine will score and cut, that will leave you with a cut out once you peel back the remaining paper.

You may notice I did not have my stylus loaded. That’s because I didn’t have one available at the time. If you do not have a stylus, you can use a ruler and any moderately sharp object like a butter knife or the edge of a spatula tool to lightly score the area. That said, I highly recommend the scoring stylus because it will save a load of time.

 Now it’s time to fold on the scoring lines. Be sure to make folds that allow for your pattern to be outward facing.

 Glue your edges into place. You will first glue the length of the box, then move on to the bottom where you’ll sandwich the two smaller tabs between the rectangle flaps.

Be sure that the glue you’re using is safe for food.

 That’s it and that’s all! 

The best part about this project is that it only takes 1 sheet of scrapbook paper and it can be customized infinitely by swapping out themes or adding embellishments.

 We sure had fun with them!

Are you going to see the new Star Wars movie on Friday? Let me know in the comments below!
