Heart-shaped boxes in which to present a Valentine cookie or other treat.

Approximate Time: 10 minutes



  1. Using the diagram as an example, draw a template the desired size.

  2. Cut two of these heart-shaped pieces from the fronts of recycled cards.

  3. Fold each piece along dotted lines to create a flange.

  4. Glue the front to the back along these flanges.

  5. Punch holes in the top for ribbon.

  6. Insert a heart-shaped cookie, thread ribbon through holes and tie in a bow.

This is a different way to send a special kiss. I made a new box for these Bacio chocolates (bacio means kiss in Italian).

I've disassembled the original box and used it as template to draw the new one in cardboard. Then I decorated the box with punched flowers and a small sentence made with die-cuts letters. The sentence is in Portuguese (my mother language) but in English means something like "Because only one is too little, I'll give you many."


This was just a "regular" surprise, but you can do something like this for Valentine's Day.

A Chinese box that I bought on clearance after Christmas for a quarter becomes a sweet valentine box.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes



  1. I got 4 of these adorable polka dotted Chinese takeout boxes for a dollar. I printed off some free digital stamps and colored them in with coloring pencils.

  3. I put them on the box and the box lid and then added pink lace.
  4. I filled them with coordinating tissue paper and chocolates and I had an extremely affordable gift for four people.
  5. 1 dollar for 4 boxes and 3 dollars for candy. 1 dollar for tissue paper. Total cost per each gift. 1.25

I had a ceramic, heart-shaped, box that I bought at the dollar store years ago but didn't like the color of it. I decided to decoupage over the design using blue and white printed napkins.


It gave new life to the box, and I was pleased with the results.
