Easy No-Tabs Heart Box



Heart Day is coming up soon.  If you're still looking for a darling gift idea, I've got you covered!

This heart box is super easy to make, the printable is super cute and I have a video to show just how easy it is.  



Included on the printable (and in the video) is a bonus project idea:  a partial pop-up card.

I believe this partial pop-up is the way she was originally meant to be.  You could use it for a card or a place card for a valentine party or maybe a valentine cookie party.



I show in the video the basics on putting this together.  The download includes a back piece to make her more polished.  Then I added a white scallop writing panel just to dress it up a little more.



I thought this vintage image would also made a super cute heart box topper.  The box is large enough to hold three chocolates. 

I like the way this heart box goes together.  It works better for me than dealing with all the tabs that come along with most heart boxes.  The video included all the tips.

The download comes with a template for the top and bottom hearts for the box.  You don't have to use my heart templates to make a heart box this way.  This  method also works for heart dies or hearts that you have cut with your electronic cutter.

Here's the video:

Dropbox seems to work differently for different people.  Either right click and save when image appears or click the download button in the top right corner.  If neither method works, email me and I'll send the files to you.

So glad you stopped by.  Have a wonderful week!

  16. Hi Lori~
    I downloaded this sweet image and printed it. It looks smaller than your video. The girl card measures 3" across and 3 7/8" down...is that how big it should be?
    And I have one more question...I have the same printer as you (love it!) and notice I do not get true bright colors in printing. Like for example this girl prints out more of a park peach and the white in it is yellowish instead of white. Do you know if there are settings or ?
    Thank you,
    Debbie

    1. Hi, Debbie! I'll email you when I get home. I do have a printout with me and the entire card (not just her) measures approx. 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". The printer issue could be settings, I'll put that in the email. And also type of paper...
