I had so much fun crating treat boxes for Christmas that I just had to do some for Valentine’s Day as well! And, since all classic Valentine chocolate gifts come in a heart-shaped box, I knew I had to try and make one of my own.

And while I was designing my heart-shaped container, I thought it would be cool to create another box that incorporated hearts in a different way. Overall, I lust LOVE the way they both came together!

How to Make the Square Box

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the box pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re not using the SVG file that includes score lines, you can use the PDF version as a reference to know where your folds should go.

2. Attach the rectangle-shaped liners to the inside of your main piece, and create your folds.

3. Glue the “lace” decorations to the outside of each heart shape. Create your folds, and attach to your main piece using the tabs.

4. Once the glue has had a chance to set, you can fill your box with goodies, and close It up by overlapping and hooking your heart shapes together.

2. Line the backside of each of your side pieces with your rectangle shapes.

3. Fold each of the tabs on your side pieces, and start gluing them onto the heart base, one or two at a time. Make sure to be as precise as possible!

When you have one side attached, glue your second side onto the vertical tab, and continue the process all the way around.

    I LOVE these!! I was up late last night, searching for an svg for this. My sister just recently lost her dog and has an “ornament” with her paw print in it, It’s made of like a silicone consistency. Being the one with the somewhat crafty mind, she tasked me to make it pretty> I didn’t want to mess with paints or glue or any other chemicals, not knowing what it will do to this “ornament”. So, my brain said, thin heart shaped box with a hole to showcase the paw print. Still struggling, but you’ve gotten me a bit closer, so long winded, i know….but thank you. GREAT TIMING!
    (If you have a better idea, I’m definitely open to it.)

      Aww, that’s such a sweet idea! Yeah, I think that would be awesome!! You could even attach a Dura-Lar film (clear) liner in the “window” to keep the ornament protected. That’s a very sweet project, and I’m glad I could help jog your creative brain. 😊
