How to Make an Easy Heart Shaped Box for Valentine's - Printable

How to make easy Valentine's Heart Boxes Free PrintableHeart shaped boxes are the symbol of Valentine's Day and I made a very easy printable design for you to make.

The 8 by 8  1/4 inch boxes are made from recycled cereal box cardboard, plain paper, white card stock and fabric.

I covered these ones with fabric but you can use scrap booking paper, wall paper, or just make them out of colored card stock.

Make one for every Valentine in your life and fill them up with sweet stuff!
Valentine heart box template free printablePrint out a copy of the Heart Box Template.pdf and make a template out of stiff cereal board. 

Cut out two heart shapes from cereal board using your template. 

If you are covering your valentine with fabric or paper try to find a thicker cereal board to make the front and back. 

(You could make this out of colored card stock but realize that the heart will be a little more delicate unless you glue two pieces of card stock together.)

Covering heart shaped box with fabric
I used very thin cotton and poly/cotton fabric to cover the boxes. 

The thicker the fabric the more glue you will have to use and there will be more chance of the cardboard warping. 







Making a heart shaped Valentine's Day box
Center your box on the fabric and cut a heart shape about 1 inch larger on all sides.

I actually flipped the cereal cardboard as the design was showing through the fabric on the other side.

Using a glue stick, glue the fabric to the heart shape.





Making a heart shaped Valentine's Day box
Cut slits all around the heart so you can pull the fabric and glue it onto the back of the heart.












Making a heart shaped Valentine's Day box- liner
Print off a copy of the Liner for Lid of Heart Box.pdf  from regular paper and glue it on the back of the heart so you are neatly covering the fabric edge.

Make a second heart for the back of your Valentine box.






Triangle boxes for heart shaped Valentine's Day box
on white card stock. 

Cut out the boxes and score along the doted fold lines with a bone folder or other dull edge.

Fold the edges up to make a triangle box and glue or tape the flaps. I taped the top lid flaps to the outside and the bottom lid flaps to the inside so the box would smoothly fit together.



Attaching triangle boxes to hearts
Center the triangle boxes on the hearts and using a glue stick glue them down. Make sure that when the boxes are placed together the hearts align.
