Hello from Silvia of Giochi di Carta! 🙂
It’s Valentine’s Day on Sunday so why not try to make your own gift box?!
What’s inside your heart? What do you want to give to your loved one? Put it in this box and give it to those who love …
I show you how to build the box!
You Will Need:
Everything you need will be easy to get hold of, in grocery stores, stationery stores or even craft shops online, try eBay so you can add everything to your basket and avail of most free shipping offered!
- a craft knife (or scissors)
- a brush
- PVA glue
- my template (print it on heavy card or scrapbook paper)
Step 1: Cut out all the pieces
Step 2: Folding
Take the base of the box and fold the flaps along the dotted line. Fold also the strip A.
Put the glue on the flaps of the base of the box with the brush.
Step 3: The Glue
Past the strip with the base as I show you in the pic and repeat this step in the right side too.
Help with finger pressure to glue the sides of the box at the base, then repeat the same process for the cover and the strips B.
Your heart box is ready and you can create lot’s of other boxes in different colours!
You can use them to give chocolates, a message, a jewel…
