It’s that time of year again – the day of romance and love is fast approaching. Admittedly, we’re not big on Valentine’s Day around here – we aren’t actually even doing anything do celebrate the day, but we do love an excuse to decorate our home and who doesn’t love a free printable? So today we’re sharing our love themed treat boxes with you!
What you’ll need to make them
- Free Printable
- Glue or Double Sided Tape
- Scissors/Craft Knife
- Clear Foil
How to make them
First of all, download the file here and then print it. We’d recommend using card stock, but regular paper will work fine. Then cut out the templates and fold along the fold lines.
For really clean folds, slightly score the paper along the fold lines. Then glue the shapes together. We used double-sided tape to glue the boxes together, but any glue would work fine, too.
To be able to fill the heart, we covered the opening of it with some clear foil. Also, if you are filling all of your boxes (we just filled the heart) remember to add the sweets before glueing down the last piece of the box.
The little love boxes are cute just as they are as Valentine’s decorations, even if you decide not to fill them. Some things in life can just be pretty and don’t necessarily need to have a purpose!
Are you doing anything for Valentine’s Day? Do you decorate your home? Do you go out and celebrate, or like us, do you really just ignore it in most cases?
