Project

Valentine's Day Boxes

Show your love this Valentine's Day by presenting your gift in a beautiful handmade box.

Materials

  • Valentine 12-by-12-inch paper pad
  • Scoring board
  • Bone folder
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Adhesive tape roller or double-sided tape
  • Decorative edge punch (optional)

Steps

  1. Step 1

    To create the box bottom, place a 12-by-12-inch piece of paper on scoring board, with the outside color of the box face up. Score at the 3- and 9-inch marks with a bone folder. Turn paper 90 degrees, and score at 3- and 9-inch marks again. Fold paper on scored lines (the "valley" of the score should be on the outside). Cut scored lines through to corners at two opposite sides. Fold flaps in to create box shape, and secure with adhesive tape roller.

  2. Step 2

    To create the box lid, place another 12-by-12-inch piece of paper on scoring board, again with the outside color face up. Shift the paper slightly to align with the arrow marking 1/16 inch. Score at the 3- and 9 1/8-inch marks with a bone folder. Turn paper 90 degrees, line up to 1/16-inch arrow, and score at 3- and 9 1/8-inch marks again. Fold, clip, and assemble box top as you did the bottom.
