Valentine's Day Box by Helen!

Valentine’s Day is almost here and I wanted to show you how to make some cute paper boxes. They are perfect to put that yummy chocolate in.

You will need
· patterned paper
· Hole puncher
· Scissors
· Bone folder
· Ribbon
· Fast drying glue
· Ink (optional)

Start with printing out this template and cut it out.

Trace the template to the back of your paper and cut out

Use the bone folder to fold all the dotted lines. Put fast drying glue along the outside of the tab.

Adhere the tab to the inside of the opposite heart. This is what you will have now

Take the two sides and slid into each other. Left is only to take the ribbon through the punched holes and make a bow. Decorate the front of the box if you want to.

This is how it looks from the top

Easy huh! When you have made your first one, you will have this down and it won’t take you more than 10 min.
