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! Choose any color or pattern of cardstock to create the box, then decorate the front however you’d like. You can add a name to the front to personalize the boxes.

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 jpeg and erase the background. Size the box to any size you’d like. I made my box image 9″ tall. Import the second file, which is a heart, and resize and duplicate it to decorate the front of the box. I chose to cut two decorative hearts to layer on the front of 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. 

Pieces of paper shaped like hearts are layered together using glue.

  • 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.

Teal paper is laying on a scoring board with a stylus nearby.

  • 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.

Scor-Tape double sided tape is applied to the sides of the heart box.

  • 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.

The tabs on the side pieces are folded down.

  • 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.

Adhesive is added to the ends of one of the tabs.The sides of heart box are attached together with tabs folded down laying on a white table.

  • Step Seven: Attach the front and back of the heart box to the bottom square section. 

The teal box is laid flat on a white table ready to be made 3D.

Attach the sides of the box to the front and back, curving the sides to follow the curve of the hearts.

The teal heart box is beginning to take shape. One side is attached and the other still needs to be.

Finally, attach the top of the basket by overlapping the two pieces at the top.

I had so much fun making these heart treat boxes! I added little adhesive rhinestones to the front of my purple box and love the added sparkle!

Use the first download, the PDF pattern, to print a pattern to cut the box by hand. Use the second two downloads, the jpegs, if you are cutting the pieces out on a cutting machine. Import and erase the background. Resize to box image. I made my box image 9″ tall.
