Sweet Little Boxes for Valentine’s Day

What is more fun that a box of candy conversation hearts?  Not much especially if you are in need of a quick and easy treat to have ready to hand out on Valentine’s Day.  First you’ll need to run to the store to purchase the candy hearts and then you can get started on making these:

One of these boxes is made from the Sweet Little Boxes.  These boxes come 10 in a package and are food safe, but they are the perfect size for small treats as the finished size is 3 1/2” x 2 1/2” x 5/8”. 

The other box pictured above was made with a piece of 9 5/16 x 3 3/4” piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock that I scored and cut.  Can you tell which is which?

I did made a “window” in the boxes as I wanted the cute candy conversation hearts to be seen!  I used one of the hearts from the Be Mine Dies (retired), but you could use other shapes as well such as a circle, square, oval….just about any die that is small enough to fit on the front of the box.  Obviously, you will have to make the window before you put the box together, but also adhere the piece of Designer Series Paper to the front at well before die cutting.  

I adhered a piece of “Window Sheet” to the inside of the box.  You don’t want your candy to fall out!

  • Sweet Little Boxes (or make your own with Basic White Thick Cardstock)
  • Basic White Thick Cardstock – Cut 9 5/16” x 3 3/4”
