Heart Box Template

I promised that I'd share my Hanging Heart Box Template from last week's Tour de Freaks!  Here is the Heart Box again.  You could easily use Designer Paper instead of cardstock!  It would make a great wedding favor or Anniversary box, too!  Lots of ways you could use it!  It also fits with the "Stamp Something" Challenge to stamp "something cute!"  I think this fits, don't you?


I used Stampin' Up!'s FILLED WITH LOVE stamp set!  TODAY is the last day to order the Filled with Love Bundle of stamp set and Love Patterns Designer Paper…and get a FREE package of Itty Bitty Buttons!  See here for more information and contact me to place your order!



It has 4 sides…I only decorated the front of this one.  You'll see from the template that there is a seam down the center of the back heart that holds it closed.  I added a little Sticky Strip in each of the heart scallops at the bottom to keep it closed and bear the weight of the candy inside.  The top is just lightly adhered with Snail so that you can get inside it easily, but it kept the heart shape.  The ribbon helps keep it closed, too!  I just used my Crop a Dile and cut thru the two layers of cardstock to punch the hole with NO problem!



One other tip…decorate the front before you make the heart box!  lol!  Ask me how I know!


Click on the template below to download the pdf file!  I printed the template on white cardstock, cut it out, then used it as a template to trace around the Real Red Cardstock.  Score on the lines, add Sticky Strip to the tab piece and adhere together to form your 4 sided Heart Box!  Depending on how straight you cut, you may have to trim up the heart scallops when you put it together.


Enjoy the pattern…hope you make one for yourself!
