Hello crafty friends! It’s time to start sharing Valentine’s Day craft projects! First up are these sweet heart-shaped Valentine treat boxes. They were so fun to make!

I chose to make my valentine treat boxes with solid pink, purple and teal paper from DCWV. I decorated the front of each box with two stacked paper hearts. The first layer is made from silver glitter paper. My favorite glitter paper is also from DCWV because it doesn’t shed ANY glitter! The heart on top was cut from a sheet of paper from the DCWV paperstack, Rainbow Splash.

Step by Step Tutorial

Step One: Cut out the pieces.

Download the free printable pattern or cut file and cut out the pieces for the box. If you are using a cutting machine, import the SVG cut file into your software. Ungroup the image then change the black lines from cut to score and attach them to the pink pieces. If your cutting machine does not score, go ahead and delete those layers.

There is one heart shape that can cut from a decorative paper and placed on the front of the heart box. Duplicate this layer to have one for the front and back. You can also duplicate the layer and make the shape smaller if you’d like to layer hearts as I did on my boxes.

Step Two: Decorate the front of the box.

Decorate the front of the boxes any way you want! Add stickers, write names on them or add hearts cut from decorative paper as I did.

Step Three: Score the sides of the box.

The sides of the boxes have flaps on either sides that will need to be folded. You can use a scoring board and stylus to score along the tabs.

Step Four: Add adhesive to the tabs.

Add adhesive to the tabs using glue or double-sided tape. Be sure to add the adhesive to right side of your paper if it is double-sided. I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape, which I like to use for treat boxes because it has a very strong hold. I placed a strip of tape along the tabs and then cut out the little triangles.

Step Five: Fold along the score lines.

Fold along the score lines and also fold the two squares at the end of the tabs. They will overlap to create the bottom of the heart box.

Step Six: Assemble the bottom of the heart box.

Both side pieces of the box have a square section at the ends of them. Add adhesive to the square that doesn’t have tabs. Layer the two squares to connect the two side pieces.
