For the record, I've already single-handedly plowed through nearly an entire bag of conversation hearts. My teeth are probably going to rot right out of my head, but at least it can be considered a tasty demise.
Today's craft I particularly like because it's a Valentine's Day pillow box. I really love the squishy flexiblity of a pillow box, don't you? Plus, it's pretty simple to assemble. Let's get started!
After you print the PDF on a heavy cardstock, trim around the solid line with scissors. Then, using a bone fold or butter knife, score along the dotted lines (I used a ruler for the straight lines, but you could probably freehand it, too):
Next, gently bend in where you just scored the lines:
It's at this point prior to taping that I highly recommend you fill in the "to/from" lines. It will be easier to accomplish while the box is still flat. Take my word for it:
Use double-sided tape to adhere on the lower tab (below the Good Gravy! logo) and join it to the opposite side of the box. Then, tuck in the sides and your pillow box is just about done!
Finally, fill the box with gift cards and/or goodies, and you have a perfectly assembled pillow box that's great for instant gift-giving.
Enjoy while I bust into bag #2 of those little hearts...hello, sugar!
