Heart Shaped Paper Box DIY


You all know I love making crafts but sometimes I don't have a clue as to what to make next! But by joining an awesome Bring On The Crafts group, it allows me to create something based on a monthly theme! And that happens to be so cool to me! 

February's theme is PAPER!. It can be any craft of our choosing as long as we use some type of paper to make it. That could be anything from decoupage to scrapbooking to cardmaking to origami. It's our choice!

Do you perhaps need a last minute box or container for that special romantic occasion that's coming up soon? Something to put those special items in? Be it jewelry, candy or any sentimental what-not!  Here's an easy way to make an adorable heart shaped box out of paper - using either clear acetate, or good old fashion cardstock!  You certainly can't go wrong making one of these! And it's definitely awesome to know how! 

 You won't believe how quick it is to make, either!  Just copy and paste the template - adjusting the size in WORD, print and cut-out!

Here, I'm using clear acetate sheet paper.


Then, by merely folding along a few lines - just glue together one side in place! 
And finally, attach a pretty ribbon for an adorable look!  

Oh, and did I mention you can add your own design or words to the template? I used Picmonkey to add my flower graphic!


And of course you can always use reliable cardstock for your favorites!

  2. When I saw the first picture I thought, "Oh it's a pretty flower heart on a string" and then you shared the template and I was bowled over. That is really neat Gail. So many different possibilities and a lovely gift for Valentine's day.
