 Before moving into our new home, I had made a few heart gift boxes and shared them on my personal blog. I had several requests from my blog viewers asking for a tutorial on how to make them.  So today.....several months later....is a tutorial.




Materials:
-1 piece of 12x12 solid cardstock (mine is black)
- 2 different pieces of 6x6 designer paper (1 piece for layering on each side and 1 for the lining on the inside of the heart box)
-Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Hearts (you will need the largest classic and scalloped dies for the actual box...I used several for decorating as well)
-12x12 cutter and scorer
- 1/4" scoretape
-scissor

optional:
 Bo Bunny - Home and SEI dp. 
 Our Daily Bread Designs- Be Joyful stamp set
 copics (Booo, Boo,  Bo1, Bo2, Bo4, YG91, YG93, G94)
 Gold Flowersoft  and Flowersoft glue




Steps:

1. For the purpose of this tutorial, I already precut 2 of the largest scalloped hearts and a 2"x9 1/2" out of the solid card stock and 4 hearts using the largest classic heart (2 from each piece of the 6x6" sheets of designer papers).


2. Score the 2 x 9 1/2" piece of cardstock and 1/4 inch from each long side.



3. Apply Scor-tape to each of the 1/4" scored edges.


4.Cut slits on the scor-tape approximately 1/4 inch apart all the way across on each side.

Since a heart can't sit on it's point, I make the box sit on it's side.

5.  Peel off the scoretape and adhere one side of the scored strip to the wrong side of the "Lining".

6.  Do the same thing with the other side of the scored rectangular strip.  The wrong side should be pointing out. 
hint: This side is more tricky to line up so I begin adhering at the point of the heart starting with the middle of my strip.  You may want to peel off half of the tape at a time and adhere to the heart.



7. Adhere the decorative layer of dp to each of the scalloped card stock hearts.


8.  Adhere each of the card stock scalloped hearts to the heart "frame" you have created to complete the heart box "shell".




9. Decorate as desired.








I used Bo Bunny - Home and SEI dp.  The sentiment and image is from Our Daily Bread Designs- Be Joyful stamp set. The image was colored with copics (Booo, Boo,  Bo1, Bo2, Bo4, YG91, YG93, G94).  Gold flowersoft was added to the centers.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and are in some way inspired by my project.  God bless you!!
