Here is a cute Valentine Heart box I designed to hold your favorite Valentine candy
I took a little different approach with my decorating, and used some pretty material I had laying around. I used wonder-under and fused it to my card stock. See my tutorial for complete instructions .
You can also use plain or printed cardstock for quick and easy Valentines.
Perhaps your kids would like to make some cute Valentines to hand out at school. Let your kids cut, decorate and fill with candy. Gather up some Valentine stamps, paints and glitter and let them get creative. It is always so much fun to make your own Valentines. I designed these to hold your favorite Valentine candy. Your Kids will be thrilled to hand these out on Valentines day.
So lets begin the tutorial:
Take a piece of wonder under or other fusible webbing, and fuse it to a piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ cotton material. Just follow the instructions on the fusible webbing. I use Wonder under Fuseable webbing. Make sure to fuse to the wrong side of material.
I used a plastic baggie and cut it down to fit over the open heart on the front of the box. I used mounting tape ( double sided). I found that glue dots and runner tape did not work too well. Remember this is the back of the box, so be careful not to have too much overlapping, cause it will show.
Fill your Heart Box with your favorite Valentine candy. Wish I had some red hots. But only had chocolate at the time I made these. lol
Hot glue the two small side flaps. These get attached to the heart. Just fold the heart over and glue to the two flaps that fold outward. The large flap is the last step, and is glued to the side of the box.
And for the finishing touch… I took some paper doilies that I purchased at the dollar store. I cut off the lacy part, and glued it to the back of the heart.
I am still trying to figuring out how to upload GSD,SVG and Coreldraw files in wordpress, so t for now I have the file in word or pdf format so you can print it out.
