Heart Box

Categories , , ,

Here’s a quick paper project I put together for #truelove to make up for me being away for a couple of days. I’m sure she won’t mind if I share it. The two nesting boxes are just big enough for a treat size choc and once open one box balances on the other making this interesting sculpture.

If you are a member you can download the parts from the link above, thanks for signing up! I printed out sheet one onto white card and sheet two onto pink. Pick the colours you like.

Carefully cut out the heart shapes. Keep them to one side and you can pop them in with the chocolate later.

Score the dotted lines and carefully cut out the pieces. Pre-crease the fold lines for easy, neat assembly.

Glue the blanking squares onto the back of the heart shaped holes.

Fold up the inner box and glue together the sides.

Add chocolate and fold down the lid.

Make up the outer box in the same way. Drop the inner box into the outer box and fold down the lid.

That’s it! The triangle hole in the base serves two purposes.

First it lets you push the inner box out…

…and secondly, it lets you balance the inner box on the inverted outer box. Cute 🙂
